Oswald Wiener: Sinn ist ein Behelf, den Mangel an formaler Kapazität auszugleichen

"How can you possibly explain the vivid visual scene you see before you in terms of the firing of neurons?" - Is Leibniz's mill example still useful today? Do we know enough of what we mean by "experience"? - The naivety of our ideas about the cognitive functions of nerves - The naivety of our ideas about our imaginations - How can a physical system have an object? - Can formal capacity replace imagining? When would formalism as a description of the brain be functionally equivalent to what is described?

A lecture with Oswald Wiener.

In cooperation with Literaturhaus Graz.
