All of us have pondered the nature and meaning of consciousness. Engaging and penetrating, The Conscious Mind adds a fresh new perspective to the /5(5). The world was all just physical objects and physical forces, devoid of life and mind.

The universe was as mindless then as the moon is now. The raw materials for making conscious minds—matter in motion—looked singularly unpromising as the building-blocks of consciousness.

"The Conscious Mind" is the most influential of contemporary works on the problem of consciousness. Indeed, it may be the finest book ever written in the philosophy of mind. Chalmers presents and defends a number of arguments against reductive physicalism, the view that mentality is an entirely physical or material by:   The conscious mind includes such things as the sensations, perceptions, memories, feeling, and fantasies inside of our current awareness.

Closely allied with the conscious mind is the preconscious (or subconcious), which includes the things that we are not thinking of at the moment but which we can easily draw into conscious awareness.

In this book Charmers seeks to accomplish two goals: to defend a version of property dualism, and to show how a genuinely scientific approach to consciousness can be erected on that foundation.

Consciousness at its simplest is "awareness or sentience of internal or external existence". Despite centuries of analyses, definitions, explanations and debates by philosophers and scientists, consciousness remains puzzling and controversial, being "at once the most familiar and most mysterious aspect of our lives".

Perhaps the only widely agreed notion about the topic is. McGinn takes a firm stand in declaring consciousness to be grounded in the material world.
