Thinking about consciousness


This is the first book to provide a detailed analysis of phenomenal concepts from a materialist point of view. By recognising the importance of phenomenal thinking, David Papineau can place a materialist account of consciousness on a firm foundation, and to lay many traditional problems of consciousness to rest. Consciousness is regarded as an intractable mystery because we humans think about it in a special way. This book analyses this special mode of thought and exposes the ways in which it can lead us into confusions about consciousness. By analysing the structure of phenomenal concepts, it exposes the flaws in the standard arguments for dualism.
