Daniel Dennett vs Keith Ward: Are we more than matter? Mind, consciousness and free will – Unbelievable?

I was a little disappointed in this podcast. I did appreciate the respect between the two participants but I did not feel like either one did a particularly good job of engaging the other person’s ideas. However you do get to see the ideas that each person is putting forward and so I do think it is still worth a listen.


In the 5th episode of The Big Conversation, Justin is joined by atheist guest Daniel Dennett and Christian guest Keith Ward. Daniel C Dennett is Professor of Philosophy at Tufts University, USA and a leading naturalist voice in the philosophy of mind. Keith Ward is a British philosopher and former Regius Professor of Divinity at Oxford University as well as being an ordained priest in the Church of England..

They debate physicalism, idealism, the ‘hard problem’ of consciousness, whether an objective moral realm exists, freewill vs determinism and whether robots could have an immortal soul  Watch the video debate and subscribe to the newsletter at https://www.thebigconversation.show/daniel-dennett-and-keith-ward
