I suppose there is a point here, but Descartes didn't really need Andrew Gluck's "help." Damasio's work is very good at times and his writing is very bad more of the time, but this, eh, not worth it. Until we all actually get together and work to define consciousness at a level agreed upon by a majority, the debate will rage on, and this book won't help the situation. Neither will Damasio's, but at least he makes a stab at it.
