Philosphy and Perception

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:33 pm on 8 August 2016

Why is it that two people can experience exactly the same event, but perceive it very differently? Associate Professor of Philosphy, Dr Bill Fish has been exploring conscious perception for many years, and says understanding how and why people perceive things so differently is vital to having a more peaceful society.

He also works with children, helping them explore philosophical questions such as what is truth, and what is fairness.
