I cannot do anything else but to repeat myself and say that this is the best introduction tho the philosophical part of the problem of consciousness.
If I would object to anything, it would be of course of the fact that there are not many papers on the science of consciousness. I mean, there are some scientific debates that make grat philosophy. Consider blindsight, split brain cases, neglect, masking, among many other things. It is quite easy to philosophize about these issues, and that would have complemented the book nicely. Metzinger does sometning similar by discussing temporal binding, and empirical conjecture, from a philosophical prespective. Also, some aspects could have received better treatment, by including opposite views.
A few highlights: Chalmers"s influential "Dancing Qualia" paper; a contrarian paper by Georges Rey; Diana Raffman's paper on why phenomenology won't go away; William Lycan's cautious endorsement of (aspects of) Jackson's "knowledge argument"; position papers by David Rosenthal, Joseph Levine, Michael Tye, Martine Nida-Rumelin; etc. etc. Plus a rare misfire by Daniel Dennett that he probably wishes he could take back.
