Conversations on Consciousness

What the Best Minds Think about the Brain, Free Will, and What It Means to Be Human

Susan Blackmore

Blackmore in this volume brings together some of the great minds of our time, a who's who of eminent thinkers, all of whom have devoted much of their lives to understanding consciousness. Some of the interviewees are major philosophers (such as John Searle, Ned Block, and David Chalmers) and some are equally renowned scientists (Francis Crick, Roger Penrose, V.S. Ramachandran). All of them talk candidly with Blackmore about some of the key philosophical issues confronting us, in a series of conversations that are revealing, insightful, and stimulating.
