Barry Smith is a professor of philosophy and directs the Institute of Philosophy at the University of London’s School of Advanced Study. He is also the founding director of the Centre for the Study of the Senses, which pioneers collaborative research between philosophers, psychologists and neuroscientists. A philosopher of language and mind, his current research is on the multisensory nature of perceptual experience, focusing on taste, smell and flavour. And he believes that Craft Chocolate is a fantastic tool to explain and explore how these multi-modal experiences of taste, flavour, smell and texture.
During this Craft Chocolate in Conversation we’ll vicariously travel through Barry’s life (starting in Glasgow as a young boy) through the means of Craft Chocolate. We’ve carefully curated the selection of bars to tell Barry’s story.
