Editorial Reviews

Review

There is nothing quite like this book available. Noë is a highly original thinker and very bold in the way he propounds his views, which range widely over topics in the theory of perception and cognition. He is selling a new way of thinking about perception and thought―and doing it very much in his own way. This book is extremely interesting and will be a source of ideas for readers with various interests. (Paul Snowdon, University College London)

By making present the philosophy in art and the art in philosophy, Noë reveals the many ways the world shows up for us thanks to our consciousness being a kind of skillful understanding. Philosophers especially, but also artists, historians, and scientists, will find new insights on every page of this passionate and profound reflection on human experience. (Evan Thompson, University of Toronto)

Alva Noë is Distinguished Professor of Philosophy at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York.

this is a must read, if you would like to understand the human mind! but beware that it wont be easy especially if youve being reading books by ramachandran, steven pinker and the like, that use the brain as the sole perceiver, this guy is a thinker! i also suggest aping mankind by raymond tallis, so you can understand the problem better.

This is a good introduction to Noe's ideas, which challenge our understanding of the difference between thinking and doing. "Consciousness is not something that happens to us, but something we make." These ideas illuminate both that our consciousness is less or different than we imagine, but still capable, even powerful, when properly understood.
