Was Schubert a Musical Brain?

Thursday, 5 September 2019, 5 – 7pm

Was Schubert a Musical Brain?

A public lecture by Prof. Raymond Tallis (University of Liverpool) as part of the 2019 Neurohumanities Public Talks series organised by the Wellcome Trust ISSF, Neurohumanities Programme.

Raymond Tallis is a philosopher, poet, novelist and cultural critic and was until recently a physician and clinical scientist. Over the last 20 years Raymond Tallis has published fiction, three volumes of poetry, and 23 books on the philosophy of mind, philosophical anthropology, literary theory, the nature of art and cultural criticism. Together with over two hundred articles in Prospect, Times Literary Supplement and other outlets, these books offer a critique of current predominant intellectual trends and an alternative understanding of human consciousness, the nature of language and of what it is to be a human being.

Please note this talk will take place in the Paccar Theatre of the Science Gallery.
