VenueCecil Sharp House

Knowledge Quarter’ partner, the School of Life, presents a unique conversation between acclaimed neuroscientist Baroness Susan Greenfield and novelist Ben Okri.

Each of us has a unique and subjective inner world, one that we can never share directly with anyone else. But how does a tangle of brain cells conjure up the rich experience of consciousness that occupies our every waking moment?

Drawing on her new pioneering research and on diverse findings from physics, philosophy and psychology, world-renowned neuroscientist Susan Greenfield will reveal how consciousness changes throughout the day and throughout our lives, and allows us to build an entirely unique view of the world.

Susan will be joined by novelist Ben Okri whose writing addresses the question: what is reality? Join us for a unique meeting of art and science, as two giants of their field tell a new story that you need to hear.
