What is consciousness How does it arise And why does it exist We take for granted our experience of being in the world. But the very existence of consciousness raises profound questions: Why would any... collection of matter in the universe be conscious How are we able to think about this And why should we In this wonderfully accessible book, Annaka Harris guides us through the evolving definitions, philosophies, and scientific findings that probe our limited understanding of consciousness. Where does it reside, and what gives rise to it Could it be an illusion, or is it a universal property of all matter As we try to understand consciousness, we must grapple with how to define it and, in the age of artificial intelligence, who or what may possess it. An illuminating meditation on the self, free will, and felt experience, Conscious offers lively and challenging arguments that alter our ideas about consciousness-allowing us to think freely about it for ourselves, if indeed we can.

Due DD Month
These products are due for release on the date shown. Many books have a specific release date that we must comply with, so these titles are not available to purchase unless the release date has been reached, and stock has been delivered on time.

When we can, we dispatch your pre order on the evening before the product is released. Depending on your delivery address, these orders can be delivered the very next day.
