Consciousness and criminal responsibility


Katrina Sifferd, professor of philosophy at Elmhurst College, speaks Jan. 19 at 10:30 a.m. at the Ethical Humanist Society of Chicago, 7574 North Lincoln Avenue in Skokie. Her topic is,  “Consciousness and Criminal Responsibility.”  Sifferd will discuss how the field of cognitive neuroscience probes into the extent to which intent is tied into the commission of a crime.  She will shine light on the role of the subconscious in our assessing criminal culpability.

Following the program, join for a Newcomer's Chat (the 3rd Sunday of each month) in the library. Those new to the Society are invited to join representatives from the Membership Committee to learn what the Society is all about in a relaxed setting.

All are welcome to our Sunday programs, which are free and open to the public, and childcare is available. For more information, please visit ethicalhuman.org.
