Katrina Sifferd, professor of philosophy at Elmhurst College, speaks January 19th on “Consciousness and Criminal Responsibility.” Sifferd will discuss how the field of cognitive neurocience probes into the extent to which intent is tied into the commission of a crime. She will throw light on the role of the subconscious in our assessing criminal culpability.
