About the Book
The mysteries of consciousness have gripped the human imagination for over 2,500 years. At the dawn of the new millennium, "Understanding Consciousness" provides new solutions to some of the deepest puzzles surrounding its nature and function.
Drawing on recent scientific discoveries, Max Velmans challenges conventional reductionist thought, providing an understanding of how consciousness relates to the brain and physical world that is neither dualist, nor reductionist.
"Understanding Consciousness" will be of great interest to psychologists, philosophers, neuroscientists and other professionals concerned with mind/body relationships, and all who care deeply about this subject.
