Consciousness and the Brain: A Scientific and Philosophical Inquiry

Globus, Gordon, Maxwell, Grover, & Savodnik, Irwin (Eds.)

 The contributors to this anthology had attended an informal conference on brain and consciousnss and were later asked to write chapters for this book, which is aimed at bringing together both philosophical and scientific viewpoints on the relationship of consciousness to the brain. The editors' expressed conviction is "that philosophers and scientists can usefully interchange, at least to the extent that they provide constraints upon each other's preferred strategies...." (p. v). There are 11 chapters, each with an introduction that summarizes the chapter and also critiques it. The authors include J. C. Eccles, R.W. Sperry, and K. Pribram. Of special note is the final chapter, "The Role of Scientific Results in Theories of Mind and Brain: A Conversation Among Philosophers and Scientists."
Publisher Information:New York: Plenum Press, 1976. 365p. Index. 424 refs
