Product Overview

Our subjective inner life is what really matters to us as human beings--and yet we know relatively little about how it arises. Over a long and distinguished career Benjamin Libet has conducted experiments that have helped us see, in clear and concrete ways, how the brain produces conscious awareness. For the first time, Libet gives his own account of these experiments and their importance for our understanding of consciousness. "Libet only dared switch to the study of consciousness after he got tenure. It is fortunate for us that he did, and that he has presented us here with what amounts to a retrospective exhibition of his work ... The refreshing result is that we are immediately engaged in an earnest one-to-one tutorial with [him] ... In [his] work, philosophers have found grist for what they do best. Indeed, his experiments ... must rank as one of the major contributions of experimental psychology to modern philosophy of mind." --Kevan Martin, Nature "What makes Benjamin Libet different from all the others writing on [consciousness] ... is that he has actually spent the past 40 years experimenting on the topic. His findings have played a central role in others' speculations. Now he has put his life's work into a single short book." --Steven Rose, New Scientist
