Consciousness: An Introduction

£34.99

Product description

Consciousness: An Introduction, Second Edition, by Susan Blackmore, published by Routledge, 2013.

Is there a theory that explains the essence of consciousness? Or is consciousness itself just an illusion? This ground-breaking textbook by best-selling author Susan Blackmore was the first of its kind to bring together all the major theories of consciousness studies, from those based on neuroscience to those based on quantum theory or Eastern philosophy. The book examines topics such as how subjective experiences arise from objective brain processes, the basic neuroscience of consciousness, altered states of consciousness, out of body and near death experiences and the effects of drugs, dreams and meditation. It also explores the nature of self, the possibility of artificial consciousness in robots, and the question of whether animals are conscious. The new edition has been fully revised to include the latest developments in neuroscience.

Paperback, appears like new except for a few bumps to corners.
