- We can order this
This volume is product of the third online consciousness conference, held at http://consciousnessonline.com in February and March 2011. Chapters range over epistemological issues in the science and philosophy of perception, what neuroscience can do to help us solve philosophical issues in the philosophy of mind, what the true nature of black and white vision, pain, auditory, olfactory, or multi-modal experiences are, to higher-order theories of consciousness, synesthesia, among others. Each chapter includes a target article, commentaries, and in most cases, a final response from the author. Though wide-ranging all of the papers aim to understand consciousness both from the inside, as we experience it, and from the outside as we encounter it in our science.
The Online Consciousness Conference, founded and organized by Richard Brown, is dedicated to the rigorous study of consciousness and mind. The goal is to bring philosophers, scientists, and interested lay persons together in an online venue to promote high-level discussion and exchanging of views, ideas and data related to the scientific and philosophical study of consciousness.

"This book, edited by Richard Brown, is an attempt to cover the interface area of philosophy and neuroscience with respect to questions regarding consciousness. ... this book represents the current state of philosophical thoughts on consciousness, with a view toward neuroscientific research in a unique and interactive manner. ... I highly recommend the book. Not only philosophers but also psychologists and neuroscientists will enjoy its contents and benefit from the presented ideas and discussions." (Hamid R.
