Conversations on consciousness

Susan Blackmore, 2005. Oxford University Press

Here you are the book i am reading right now. It includes interviews with all the authors you can see in the cover, all of them experts on the study on consciousness -how they got into studying consciousness, the dualism mind&body, free will, qualia, zombies, and the hard problem.

Note that among others, Francis Crick gives his last interview before passing a few months later.

I am enjoying the reading because i knew almost nothing about this near-philosophical-topic, and in this case, the ones who give their answers are experimental researchers -not theorists, because then i would be lost. Also, every author gives his / her own answers to all those questions, revealing the many differences among them, and explaining why they think so.

Highly recommended!
