‘An excellent book’ – Ted Honderich, Emeritus Professor of Philosophy of Mind and Logic at University College London (UCL) 

Introducing Consciousness provides a comprehensive guide to the current state of consciousness studies. It starts with the history of the philosophical relation between mind and matter, and proceeds to scientific attempts to explain consciousness in terms of neural mechanisms, cerebral computation and quantum mechanics. Along the way, readers will be introduced to zombies and Chinese Rooms, ghosts in machines and Erwin Schrodinger’s cat.

David Papineau is Professor of Philosophy of Science at King’s College London. Howard Selina is an acclaimed graphic artist.
