Are we just advanced primates? Are we machines? Are we souls confined to a body, longing to escape? This week, Vince and Jo are joined by RZIM Itinerant Speaker Sharon Dirckx, whose doctoral research in the area of brain imaging informs her new book, Am I Just My Brain? The crew walks through the intricacies of one of the most important issues we face today, discussing some of the far-reaching (and often unacknowledged) implications of the claim that human beings are nothing more than the sum total of our brain waves.

Question Asked in This Episode:
"If we are just our brains and nothing more, what are the implications?"
