Consciousness: An Introduction, 3rd Edition

By Susan Blackmore, Emily T. Troscianko

This pioneering title is introducing the concept of consciousness, a critical and rapidly expanding field. Now in its third edition, but published for the first time by Routledge, this new edition has undergone an overhaul and is to be commended for the range of positive supporting reviews it has already garnered: 'they've [the authors] made a great book even greater.' Striking design (and cover!) supported by engaging pedagogical features such as intext concept boxes, questions, and activities for both independent and group study, along with an easily navigable companion website organized into clear sections and subsections.
