Consciousness, Self and Society - Evolutionary Perspectives

The purpose of this Project is to investigate the evolutionary origin of human consciousness and its implications at the individual and societal level, and to encourage debate on these topics within the LSE.

Research is concentrated on (i) consciousness, as an evolutionary adaptation (Nicholas Humphrey), (ii) the nature of the "placebo effect" (Nicholas Humphrey in collaboration with John Skoyles), (iii) "Cave Art, Autism and the Evolution of the Human Mind" (Nicholas Humphrey in collaboration with Paul Trehin).
