Episode #93 - Understanding the “Self” Through the Lens of Neuroscience - with Harvard’s Dr. Rudolph Tanzi

Dr. Rudolph Tanzi is a neuroscientist and renowned researcher at Harvard University. Selected as one of TIME Magazine’s 100 most influential people of 2015 for his groundbreaking alzheimer’s research, Dr. Tanzi also serves as the Director of the Genetics and Aging Research Unit at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH).

In this interview, Dr. Tanzi shares his perspective on the relation of thought, the “self,” and free will – as well as his perspective on human enhancement and evolution (which he believes will occur at a biological and genetic level, not through a merger with machines).
