Talk: The Extension of Mind

It seems obvious to most of us that our minds are within our heads but some contemporary thinkers have other ideas. Can we extend our mind ‘beyond skin and skull’? Is it outside our heads already anyway?

This talk examines some of these ideas and where I think they lead to – often back inside our heads to the workings of our brains. Via topics as diverse as telepathy, telephones, trivia, transhumanism and tongue vision, it ultimately leads to the question: what counts as ‘me’?
