PHILOSOPHY. "In this book we develop ways to answer the following questions: How does consciiousness arise as a result of particular neural processes and of the interactiions among the brain, the body, and the world ? How do these neural processes account for key properties of conscious experience ? Each conscious state is unified and indivisible, yet at the same time, each person can choose among and immense number of different conscious states; How can we understand different subjective states - so-called qualia - in neural terms ? How can our understanding of consciousness help connect strictly scientific descriptions to the wider domain of human knowledge and experience ?
