Consciousness

£10.99

Product description

This soft cover book is in good condition. There are no internal markings or annotations. The page edges and ends are clean except for some scuff marks across the bottom from having been shelved and some dirt across the bottom corner (see photo). Externally, the book's cover is intact. There is a small dent in the paper of the front cover and a crease across the bottom corner on the back cover. The bottom corner has been bumped. All in all, a good copy of this book.

'This text presents a review of the diverse philosophical views on consciousness - including those of Kripke, Block, Campbell, Sellars, and Casteneda and demonstrates how each opposing view can be accommodated in the author's framework of belief, an original theory of mind he calls "homuncular functionalism." Lycan argues that human beings are "functionally organized information-processing systems" who do not have non-physical parts. However, he also recognizes the subjective phenomenal quality of the mind, an important sense in which mind is "over and above" mere chemical matter.'
