Description

The phenomenon of consciousness has always been a central question for philosophers and scientists. Emerging in the past decade are new approaches to the understanding of consciousness in a scientific light. This book presents a series of essays by leading thinkers giving an account of the current ideas prevalent in the scientific study of consciousness. The value of the book lies in the discussion of this interesting though complex subject from different points of view ranging from physics and computer science to the cognitive sciences. Reviews of controversial ideas related to the philosophy of mind from western and eastern sources including classical Indian first person methodologies provide a breadth of coverage that has seldom been attempted in a book before. Additionally, chapters relating to the new approaches in computational modeling of higher order cognitive function and consciousness are included. The book is of great value for established as well as young researchers from a wide cross-section of interdisciplinary scientific backgrounds, aiming to pursue research in this field, as well as an informed public.

Key Features

  • Presents the latest developments in the scientific study of consciousness
  • Critically reviews different theoretical and philosophical explanations related to the subject
  • An important book for both students and researchers in designing research projects on consciousness

Readership

The book is mainly targeted towards students of physics, computer science , psychology and philosophy. The book should also be of interest to those who subscribe to the Elsevier journals Cognition, Consciousness and Cognition, Trends in Cognitive Sciences and Cognitive Science , to name a few. It should also appeal to the public who have a keen interest in studies related to consciousness.

Academic specialisation in physics, computer science , psychology and philosophy. Students and Researchers
