Consciousness

No need to read ALL 1377 pages!

There has been a lot of talk on the forums about consciousness lately. I feel it would help the discussions (that people seem passionate about) if they read the section in this book.

Consciousness Chapter 10 (P.1105-1218)

I have the third edition. The fact that each chapter relates to the others will probably make you want to dip into them :)

I have read everything on consciousness in the third edition and I am halfway through this chapter too. Just finished chapter 78 which is an update of a chapter in the third edition. Some really interesting points about arousal and consciousness relating to the central thalamus.

Chapter 77 (first chapter in this section) is from a philosophers point of view. Personally I find it less informative than Chalmers in the third edition (you can probably find a pdf for the third edition somewhere I would have thought.
