Beschreibung

The relation between subjective consciousness and the physical brain is widely regarded as the last mystery facing science. Papineau argues that consciousness seems mysterious not because of any hidden essence, but only because we think about it in a special way. He exposes the resulting potential for confusion, and shows that much scientific study of consciousness is misconceived.

Pressestimmen

Review from previous edition lucid and informative ... It synthesizes at least thirty years of relevant philosophical investigation - not only in philosophy of mind, but also in philosophy of science, metaphysics and philosophical logic. The book is an excellent introduction to this area, and those more familiar with it will find the treatment deft and insightful. Alva Noe, Times Literary Supplement
