9780002006699: Theatre of the Mind: Raising the Curtain on Consciousness

Can we be conscious of our consciousness? What doesconsciousness feel like? Is it really a stream of steadily flowing thoughts,images and feelings, or something else altogether? What happens in those lapsesduring highway driving, in which you have no memory of the last 10 kilometres?How is it that most of what goes on in our brains is actually unconscious?And, in the end, do we even need our brain?

Jay Ingram, renowned science broadcaster and bestselling author,takes us on his most challenging and controversial journey yet—a look at thestate of consciousness. Mixing science, philosophy, history and pop culture,Ingram transforms grey matter into a brilliantly hued, completely understandableexploration of what’s really going on in our conscious and unconscious minds.
