Book Description

July 31, 1997 0198524145 978-0198524144 1
The topic of consciousness is truly multidisciplinary, attracting researchers and theorists from diverse backgrounds. It is now widely accepted that previously disparate areas all have contributions to make to the understanding of the nature of consciousness. Thus, we now have computational scientists, neuroscientists, and philosophers all engaged in the same effort. This book illustrates these three approaches, with chapters provided by some of the most important and provocative figures in the field. The first section is concerned with philosophical approaches to consciousness. One of the fundamental issues here is that of subjective feeling or qualia. The second section focuses on approaches from cognitive neuroscience. Patients with different types of neurological problems, and new imaging techniques, provide rich sources of data for studying how consciousness relates to brain function. The third section includes computational approaches looking at the quantitative relationship between brain processes and conscious experience. Cognition, Computation, and Consciousness represents a uniquely integrated and current account of this most fascinating and intractable subject.

Editorial Reviews

Review

`In pursuing the editors' stated aim of understanding the brain mechanisms of consciousness, this book presents a valuable interdisciplinaryt perspective. An impressive body of research is fathered which, coupled with some insightful speculation offered by several authors, significantly clarifies many of the issues surrounding higher cognitive function ... it conveys effectively the rich diversity of research that informs the science of consciousness.' Brian L. Lancaster, Trends in Cognitive Sciences - Vol. 1, No. 4, July 1997
