The Blackwell Companion to Consciousness
David M. Rosenthal, City University of New York, Graduate Center
"This is an outstanding book that anyone interested in consciousness really needs to read and absorb."
"The editors can be congratulated on achieving such a generous spread of high-quality chapters by a surprising number of eminent contributors. So this book is valuable as a record of some of the best contemporary thinking on consciousness. It is perhaps especially useful as a text for postgraduate and maybe final-year undergraduate students... It is impossible, in a brief review, to give an idea of the richness of this collection... I believe this volume makes a valuable sourcebook for scholars from all sides of the consciousness community."
The Journal of Consciousness Studies
“The list of contributors reads like a roll-call of the best modern studies of consciousness: they have contributed some of the best philosophy, psychology, and neuroscience of consciousness. The chapters of this companion show that consciousness has moved on from being a set of interesting problems towards being a topic of systematic, interdisciplinary scientific investigation.”
Patrick Haggard, University College London
“An absolutely indispensable resource for anyone interested in the study of consciousness. The major philosophical positions and controversies and all the latest scientific research are surveyed in 55 accessible, yet in-depth, essays.”
