I've been struggling with brain and consciousness books for a long time, and this one really helped me to start getting it.

<>


There's some very good descriptions and graphics specifying how the properties of conscious experience can emerge from the properties of the brain. It's only 150 pages, so it doesn't get into too much detail......


<t>
for more detail, if you haven't read them ... we rec
Damasio's trilogy (POV of an M.D.)
"Mind" , by John Searle (POV of philosopher)
( i'm about half-way through both... & find the former more readable, FWIW ....

&& This Week, i'd recommend a good case of the gout to give you a direct, personal,
religious, experience that 'Proves' their point(s) )
