"This outstanding collection of new essays, many by major figures, covers virtually every important topic in current research on consciousness, often in illuminating depth. Nobody interested in current thinking about consciousness will want to be without this volume." David M. Rosenthal, City University of New York, Graduate Center "The list of contributors reads like a roll-call of the best modern studies of consciousness: they have contributed some of the best philosophy, psychology, and neuroscience of consciousness. The chapters of this companion show that consciousness has moved on from being a set of interesting problems towards being a topic of systematic, interdisciplinary scientific investigation." Patrick Haggard, University College London "An absolutely indispensable resource for anyone interested in the study of consciousness. The major philosophical positions and controversies and all the latest scientific research are surveyed in 55 accessible, yet in-depth, essays." Robert Kane, University of Texas at Austin "This is an outstanding book that anyone interested in consciousness really needs to read and absorb." The Psychologist "A valuable record of some of the best contempory thinking on consciousness." The Journal of Consciousness StudiesVom Verlag:
