About this product
- DescriptionIn The Nature of Consciousness, Mark Rowlands develops an invative account of the nature of phemenal consciousness, one that has significant consequences for attempts to find a place for it in the natural order. The most significant feature of consciousness is its dual nature: consciousness can be both the directing of awareness and that upon which awareness is directed. Rowlands offers a clear and philosophically insightful discussion of the main positions in this fast-moving debate, and argues that the phemenal aspects of conscious experience are aspects that exist only in the directing of experience towards n-phemenal objects, a theory that undermines reductive attempts to explain consciousness in terms of what is t conscious. His book will be of interest to a wide range of readers in the philosophy of mind and language, psychology and cognitive science.
