(p.27) Chapter 3 Where science and consciousness meet

Jeffrey Gray

Oxford University Press

The previous chapter started on the task of convincing you that there is indeed a problem of consciousness. The arguments deployed there turned mainly on matters of fact about conscious experiences. This chapter continues that task by looking at a broader theoretical picture: how do the facts about consciousness fit into the rest of the scientific world-view? Specifically, it discusses scientific reduction in biology and how consciousness fits into neuroscience.

Keywords:   consciousness, scientific reduction, biology, neuroscience
