The Race for ConsciousnesseBook - 1999
"There is a sense among scientists that the time is finally ripe for the problem of consciousness to be solved once and for all. The development of new experimental and theoretical tools for probing the brain has produced an atmosphere of unparalleled optimism that the job can now be done properly: The race for consciousness is on!" "In this book, John Taylor describes the complete scene of entries, riders, gamblers, and racecourses. He presents his own entry into the race, which he has been working on for the past twenty-five years - the relational theory of consciousness, according to which consciousness is created through the relations between brain states, especially those involving memories of personal experiences."--BOOK JACKET.
