Giulio Tononi: “Consciousness and its place in nature”

Giulio Tononi, professor at the University Wisconsin-Madison, will give the 10th Ernst Robert Curtius Lecture at the University of Bonn entitled Consciousness and its place in nature. He is the main exponent of the Integrated Information Theory (IIT), which – to put it simply – introduces a mathematical measure, Phi, to measure whether a given natural system has consciousness. In his lecture on May 10, 16-18 h (c.t.) in the seminar room of IZPH and CST, Poppelsdorfer Allee 28, Prof. Tononi will illuminate the connection between the neurobiological and philosophical levels of his work.
