In this episode I interview philosopher Evan Thompson, who is a Professor of Philosophy at University of British Columbia, mainly in the fields of cognitive science, philosophy of mind and Phenomenology. He is the author of the book Waking, Dreaming, Being: Self and Consciousness in Neuroscience, Meditation, and Philosophy. We discuss a wide range of topics, the aspects of consciousness in sleep and lucid dreaming, various scientific studies, meditation as well as get into some geeky philosophical pondering on dreams and the nature of the sense of self.

By Evan Thompson, Stephen Batchelor (Foreword by)
A renowned philosopher of the mind, also known for his groundbreaking work on Buddhism and cognitive science, Evan Thompson combines the latest neuroscience research on sleep, dreaming, and meditation with Indian and Western philosophy of the mind, casting new light on the self and its relation to the brain.
Thompson shows how the self is a changing process, not a static thing.
Thompson weaves together neuroscience, philosophy, and personal narrative to depict these transformations, adding uncommon depth to life's profound questions. Contemplative experience comes to illuminate scientific findings, and scientific evidence enriches the vast knowledge acquired by contemplatives.
