Why? The Purpose of the Universe
My new book Why? The Purpose of the Universe defends cosmic purpose in the absence of the traditional God. Here's a deep dive into some of the techy details on the excellent Majesty of Reason podcast.
The Fine-Tuning of Physics for Life
My new book Why? The Purpose of the Universe defends a middle way between God and atheism. The case is partly based on the fine-tuning of physics for life. Here cosmologist Luke Barnes and myself defend fine-tuning tuning arguments against a recent critique.
The Metaphysics of Mind
This is a debate/discussion with one of the most influential metaphysicians of contemporary philosophy, Jonathan Schaffer, on one of my favourite philosophy podcasts Parker’s Pensees.
Psycho-Physical Harmony debate
I love getting into the head of people I disagree with, and boy do I disagree with Lance Bush. I enjoyed watching him on a number of other podcasts before we got the chance to chat on the wonderful Digital Gnosis channel
Galileo's Error: Foundations for a New Science of Consciousness
This is a video of the launch event for my book, which was with family and friends in Durham Castle. I give a short talk, which sums up the 'big picture' themes of the book
Are there Objective Values?
I believe there are objective facts about value. Kane Baker is a philosopher who doesn't. Here we have a nice chat about it, and I put forward my argument for the reality of objective values. Warning: This one's a bit techy.
Consciousness and Fundamental Reality
This is a talk I gave in Munich in January 2018 concerning the main themes of my academic book Consciousness and Fundamental Reality.
Arguments against Materialism
This took a deep dive into the philosophical arguments against materialism from 30 mins in. Might be useful to philosophy students!
Consciousness Live! Discussion
Here's a two hour discussion I had with Richard Brown as part of 'Consciousness Live!'. This gets much more into the details of my academic work, mainly on my arguments against materialism.
