About the Authors
  • The Cambridge Handbook of Consciousness is the first of its kind in the field, and its appearance marks a unique time in the history of intellectual inquiry on the topic. After decades during which consciousness was considered beyond the scope of legitimate scientific investigation, consciousness re-emerged as a popular focus of research towards the end of the last century, and it has remained so for nearly 20 years. There are now so many different lines of investigation on consciousness that the time has come when the field may finally benefit from a book that pulls them together and, by juxtaposing them, provides a comprehensive survey of this exciting field. An authoritative desk reference, which will also be suitable as an advanced textbook.

    • Unique survey of an exciting field thus far considered beyond the scope of legitimate scientific investigation
    • Leading scholars address topics from a wide variety of perspectives
    • Pulls together and juxtaposes many different lines of investigations providing a comprehensive survey

    Reviews & endorsements

    "This volume provides readers from many disciplines with the foundation and knowledge to date on the very comprehensive and complex study of consciousness."
    --Janet L. Etzi, PsycCRITIQUES

    "...the breath of coverage is impressive....a useful resource....In sum, the book displays how thoroughly our dualistically oriented culture's scientific investigation of human behavior is held in the grip of ancient traditional constructs that are imposed on observed events..."
    --Noel W. Smith, State University of New York at Plattsburg, The Psychological Record
