BACK COVER #
Susan Blackmore considers whether we really have free will and what creates our sense of self, exploring key theories about consciousness that include recent experiments on action and awareness, vision and attention, altered states of consciousness, and the effects of brain damage and drugs--ultimately questioning whether consciousness itself may be an illusion.
