The World in My Mind, My Mind in the World: Key Mechanisms of Consciousness in People, Animals and Machines
Never one to dodge the big questions, Igor Aleksander tackles them head on in this latest book: Is there a ?real world? or is our awareness of one an illusion? Are animals conscious? Can machines be conscious? What is it to be unconscious? Does the ?science of consciousness? impinge on religious thought? How is consciousness affected by mental deterioration? The author is Professor Emeritus of Electrical Engineering at Imperial College, London. Well established as a skilled and provocative communicator, he addresses both the general reader and the consciousness specialist.
