Speaker information

Professor Chris Carey, UCL Greek and Latin
Professor Semir Zeki, UCL Neuroesthetics

What were the ideals surrounding the ancient Greek Olympic games? Professor Chris Carey (UCL Greek and Latin) will be in dialogue with Professor Semir Zeki (UCL Neuroesthetics) to discuss how these ideals integrated into the more general Greek ideals of beauty, achievement and politics. What can we say today about what constitutes ideals in neural terms and how ideals are formed and transformed in the brain?
