(p.261) Chapter 17 Consciousness of self: The point of view

Jeffrey Gray

Oxford University Press

The feverish modernity, in the last few chapters, of neuroscience and quantum mechanics has perhaps obscured the hoary antiquity of the problems we are dealing with: the nature of consciousness, the reality of the external world, and so on. The questions tackled in this chapter are no less hoary. They keep steady company with the Hard Problem. Whose consciousness is it anyway? What is this mysterious ‘self’ to which conscious experiences are automatically attributed?

Keywords:   consciousness, conscious experience, Hard Problem, self
