  1. Why is Ukraine the West’s Fault? Featuring John Mearsheimer

    UnCommon Core: The Causes and Consequences of the Ukraine Crisis

    John J. Mearsheimer, the R. Wendell Harrison Distinguished Service Professor in Political Science and Co-director of the Program on International Security Policy at the University of Chicago, assesses the causes of the present Ukraine crisis, the best way to end it, and its consequences for all of the main actors. A key assumption is that in order to come up with the optimum plan for ending the crisis, it is essential to know what caused the crisis. Regarding the all-important question of causes, the key issue is whether Russia or the West bears primary responsibility.

  3. V. S. Ramachandran: The Emerging Mind - Lecture 2: “Synapses and the Self”

    The Reith Lectures, Vilayanur S. Ramachandran: The Emerging Mind: 2003 Episode 2 of 5: "Synapses and the Self" (The rest of the talks from this series can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLez3PPtnpncRww-eZcVnRSHK0kSnTUlEp)

    In his second Reith Lecture Professor Ramachandran examines the process we call 'seeing'; how we become consciously aware of things around us. How does the activity of the 100 billion little wisps of protoplasm - the neurons in the brain - give rise to all the richness of our conscious experience, including the 'redness' of red, the painfulness of pain or the exquisite flavour of Marmite or Vindaloo?

    This year's Reith Lecturer is Vilayanur S Ramachandran, Director of the Centre for Brain and Cognition. He has lectured widely on art and visual perception of the brain and is Editor-in-chief of the Encyclopaedia of Human Behaviour. Professor Ramachandran's work has concentrated on investigating phenomena such as phantom limbs, anosognosia and anorexia nervosa.

  4. V. S. Ramachandran: The Emerging Mind - Lecture 1: “Phantoms in the Brain”

    The Reith Lectures, Vilayanur S. Ramachandran: The Emerging Mind: 2003 Episode 1 of 5: "Phantoms in the Brain" (The rest of the talks from this series can be found here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLez3PPtnpncRww-eZcVnRSHK0kSnTUlEp)

    This year's Reith Lecturer is Vilayanur S Ramachandran, Director of the Centre for Brain and Cognition. He has lectured widely on art and visual perception of the brain and is Editor-in-chief of the Encyclopaedia of Human Behaviour. Professor Ramachandran's work has concentrated on investigating phenomena such as phantom limbs, anosognosia and anorexia nervosa.

    Professor Ramachandran begins his Reith Lecture series on 'The Emerging Mind' by arguing that scientists need no longer be afraid to ask the big questions about what it means to be human. With empirical evidence, science can now answer ancient philosophical questions about meaning and existence. By studying neurological syndromes that have been largely ignored as curiosities or mere anomalies, we can sometimes acquire novel insights into the functions of the brain. Many of the functions of the brain, he says, are best understood from an evolutionary vantage point.
