In conjunction with the Rice Seminars, the Humanities Research Center at Rice University hosts yearlong residential fellowships for outstanding visiting faculty who will participate in the 2019-20 Rice Seminar: The Value of Consciousness and the Consciousness of Value. This seminar’s organizing questions may be framed as follows: Does consciousness bestow on its possessor a special kind of value? If so, what is this special value and what is it about consciousness that bestows this value on its possessor? In what ways, if any, does our conscious experience (in perception, emotion, and thought) of conscious beings disclose their distinctive value?
