Exploring the Mind-Body Connection in 'Soma'

by G. Christopher Williams

28 November 2016

Soma explores human identity and human consciousness through its slow burn sci fi horror.
 

Following up on our discussions of Amnesia: The Dark Descent and Amnesia: A Machine for Pigs, we are now discussing the slow burn sci fi horror of Soma.

Soma considers philosophical questions concerning the relationship between the body and the mind, a topic we dive into head first this week.
