Kritik


From the reviews:

`[...] Foss has produced an excellent book from which consciousness researchers can profit.'
Philosophia, 31:1-2 (October 2003)

"Professor Foss has written not just one book but sketched two in outline. Ostensively his task is to show how one might study matters of consciousness in a scientifically responsible manner. ... Foss has written a most exciting work. It is both rigorously argued and fun to read. Foss's book should earn him a place with the likes of Daniel Dennett and Owen Flanagan - high praise indeed." (Paul A. Wagner, The Review of Metaphysics, Vol. LVI (223), 2003)
