  • Professor Raymond Tallis

    Professor Emeritus of Geriatric Medicine and Consultant Physician

    University of Manchester

    Most of Raymond’s 200 research publications are in the field of neurology of old age and neurological rehabilitation. He has published original articles in Nature Medicine, Lancet and other leading journals and in 2000 was elected Fellow of the Academy of Medical Sciences. Raymond was involved in producing two major reports for the institution: ‘Restoring Neurological Function: Putting the neurosciences to work in neurorehabilitation’ and ‘Rejuvenating Ageing Research’. He has published fiction (a novel and short stories), three volumes of poetry, and 20 books on the philosophy of mind, philosophical anthropology, literary theory, the nature of art, and cultural criticism. These offer a critique of current predominant intellectual trends and an alternative understanding of human consciousness, the nature of language and of what it is to be a human being. He writes regularly for The Times and has a column in Philosophy Now.
