Life Story - Bruce Hood, Galen Strawson, Marya Schechtman, Hilary Lawson

From the Institute of Art and Ideas, experimental psychologist Bruce Hood (The Self Illusion: How the Social Brain Creates Identity), philosopher Galen Strawson (Selves: An Essay in Revisionary Metaphysics), and philosopher of personal identity Marya Schechtman (The Constitution of Selves) discuss how we construct our internal narratives about our lives and whether they reflect our lives or actively shape them.

Good stuff!
