In the Rolodex: Professor Barry C. Smith

A Philosophy of Mind Professor from the UK, Dr Smith has a clear way of phrasing the problems (and solutions?) in a discipline where that’s just not easy.  This plus his pleasant lecturing style have led to some work in the media, BBC radio, youtube, etc.  He embraces scientific/neurological study of the senses and consciousness, but often (adroitly) defends the classic philosophical problems to those who might “scientifically dismiss” them.
