Blackmore explores the big questions on the nature of brains, no, and consciousness, through twenty lively and engaging interviews with some of the best-known personalities from the worlds of science and philosophy.

Sue Blackmore, herself a writer on consciousness, engages in conversation with each of these very different personalities, drawing out their views on the nature of the mind, on how what goes blackmorr in the network of neurons in the brain produces our vivid experiences, and whether we have free will.

The interviews are conducted in an informal but focused style, bringing out the susa of each interviewee, and giving the reader a very accessible and readable introduction suwan their ideas, and to the central scientific and philosophical challenges involved in understanding the nature of mind and consciousness.

Susan Blackmore has transcribed in itself a massive feat! The interviews deal with definitions of consciousness, whether we have free will, whether machines might someday be conscious, the zombie problem whether beings that appear to be conscious but aren’t really might existand so.


Consciousness studies is a fascinating area, first because it’s so multidisciplinary, and, second, because the questions are so fundamental, and this wonderful shows the range of opinions and interpretations currently taken seriously by neuroscientists black,ore philosophers.

This is a terrific read, and the Kobo edition has nice layout and design.
