Minds and Bodies



Thursday 23 July 2015


Join us to explore the age-old medical and philosophical conundrum of the connection between the mind and the body. Drawing on the Library’s original publications of the work of René Descartes (1596–1650), we will discover what the French polymath’s adage “I think therefore I am” can tell us about what it means to be a thinking thing in a physical world.
