it was ok

Searle is a major philosopher of science, and his expertise is in analysis of consciousness. I think this is a matter for scientists, but I slogged through another philosopher of his stature. The effort confirmed by suspicions that understanding concsiousness is a job for science. The only interesting part of this book was a clever anallysis of the role of illusion in an argument for perceptional realism. Overall, nbot worth reading.
