Andrew | 17 comments Just wanted to post a good book I've been reading the last few days. Conversations on Consciousness, by Susan Blackmore, is one of the few in-depth but also informal books I've read on consciousness. It's basically just a series of interesting conversations with many prominent neurophilosophers (Dennet, the Churchlands, David Chalmers, etc.) in which they're all asked similar questions about the field, and give their own answers in a conversation. It's pretty interesting to see how all their various theories and core beliefs about human consciousness intersect and divurge. Worth a read...

Has anyone read The Emotion Machine by Marvin Minsky?
