On this episode of ID the Future, Logan Gage interviews Michael Egnor, professor of neurosurgery at SUNY Stony Brook, on the mind-body problem and promissory materialism.

Dr. Egnor explains how materialism has not been able to answer the "hard problem of consciousness." Instead, as promissory materialism, it claims that materialism as a theory will eventually be able to explain what it has yet to explain at all.
