This collection of short videos comes from Nour Foundation . . . . Some of the people featured in these conversations include Thomas Metzinger on the phenomenal self, Even Thompson on the embodied self, Timothy Wilson on the adaptive unconscious, and many others.

Perspectives on the Self: Conversations on Identity & Consciousness 
"Who am I?" This question lies at the heart of our deeply rooted need to understand our experience of consciousness known as the Self. This six-part series brings together experts from the sciences and the humanities for interdisciplinary conversations on the evolving meaning of the Self.

The Nour Foundation explores meaning and commonality in human experience by adopting a multidisciplinary and integrative approach to the study of principles and values that universally engender greater understanding, tolerance, and unity among human beings worldwide.
