We will consider what philosophers have to say on two topics. First, is consciousness reducible to some kind of brain state, or some other physical state of cognitive beings? (We will focus on some recent arguments in metaphysics that suggest the answer is ‘no’.) Second, what is the relation between a person and their body? In particular, we will consider whether a person could survive the destruction of their body; whether two people could inhabit the same body; and whether we two distinct things, if we are both human beings and persons?
