On Consciousness: Science and Subjectivity
Scott Barry Kaufman: Bernard Baars fundamentally changed the scientific study of consciousness over 30 years ago and he has done it again in a stimulating update on consciousness called On Consciousness: Science & Subjectivity — Updated Works on Global Workspace Theory. In his new book he proposes novel predictions and draws on the latest research in cognitive science. This magnum opus is really incredible and should be on the bookshelf for anyone seriously interested in wrestling with the paradoxes and mysteries of human consciousness. In this interview with Baars, we discuss his new book and his latest thoughts on the scientific study of consciousness.
