Essays defend, discuss, and critique specific theories of consciousness with respect to various psychopathologies.

In Disturbed Consciousness, philosophers and other scholars examine various psychopathologies in light of specific philosophical theories of consciousness. The contributing authors―some of them discussing or defending their own theoretical work―consider not only how a theory of consciousness can account for a specific psychopathological condition but also how the characteristics of a psychopathology might challenge such a theory. Thus one essay defends the higher-order thought (HOT) theory of consciousness against the charge that it cannot account for somatoparaphrenia (a delusion in which one denies ownership of a limb). Another essay argues that various attempts to explain away such anomalies within subjective theories of consciousness fail.

Other essays consider such topics as the application of a model of unified consciousness to cases of brain bisection and dissociative identity disorder; prefrontal and parietal underconnectivity in autism and other psychopathologies; self-deception and the self-model theory of subjectivity; schizophrenia and the vehicle theory of consciousness; and a shift in emphasis away from an internal (or brainbound) approach to psychopathology to an interactive one. Each essay offers a distinctive perspective from the intersection of philosophy, consciousness research, and psychiatry.

About the Author:

Rocco J. Gennaro is Professor and Department Chair of Philosophy at the University of Southern Indiana and the author of The Consciousness Paradox: Consciousness, Concepts, and Higher-Order Thoughts (MIT Press).

Review:

A wonderful collection of astute contributions from an array of disciplines that anyone interested in the interface between philosophy, the brain, neuropathology, and psychological disturbances will find fascinating.

Todd E. Feinberg, M.D., Professor of Psychiatry and Neurology, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai; author of From Axons to Identity: Neurological Explorations of the Nature of the Self (Endorsement)

This is a timely collection of philosophically sophisticated essays on psychopathologies and disturbances of consciousness and self-consciousness. It reflects some of the best work being done on connecting theories of consciousness with theories of mental disorder. It is a most welcome contribution to the field of philosophical psychopathology.

George Graham, Professor of Philosophy and Adjunct Faculty, Neuroscience Institute, Georgia State University; author of The Disordered Mind (Endorsement)

This stellar collection of essays breaks new ground in the study of consciousness, and is required reading for anyone interested in the nature of human experience and the pathologies to which it is subject.

Tim Bayne, Professor of Philosophy, University of Western Ontario and University of Manchester; author of The Unity of Consciousness and Thought: A Very Short Introduction (Endorsement)
