"The author offers a comprehensive and very readable review of the field of consciousness studies. Revonsuo argues for a causal role for phenomenology, claiming that 'subjective phenomenal consciousness is a real, natural biological phenomenon that literally resides within the confines of the brain.' He goes on to suggest ways to bridge the gap between the neural and the phenomenological levels in a style that makes his argument accessible to intelligent readers. By integrating the philosophy, psychology, and biology of consciousness, and by including dreaming consciousness within its purview, *Inner Presence* distinguishes itself from other fine books on the subject."--David Kahn, Department of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School
"Revonsuo steers an important and interesting path through a variety of theoretical and methodological considerations from different domains and does so with a clarity that makes such considerations interdisciplinarily accessible." Arnon Cahen Quarterly Review of Biology
