Przednia okładka
Springer Science & Business Media, 31 sie 2000 - 225
Consciousness has become a major topic of scientific interest, and dozens of books have been written in recent years to explain it, yet it still remains a mystery. Science and the Riddle of Consciousness explains why consciousness is a riddle for science, and demonstrates how this riddle can be solved.
The questions examined in the book speak directly to neuroscientists, computer scientists, psychologists, and philosophers.
