Coming Soon ...

 

 

Consciousness: The WebCourse. Fall, 2007. Bernard Baars & Katie A. McGovern

 

Consciousness: The Webcourse will focus on evidence and theory about our conscious experience embracing all three classical approaches:  Personal, Intersubjective, and Scientific.

 

Each week will have a lecture, in print and audio. In experiential Phenomenology Labs, we will explore personal experiences of dreams, perceptual illusions, feelings of knowing, emotional highs and lows, the fleeting present and unconscious influences. We will also look at the second person perspective, what it means for an “I” to encounter a “Thou.”  Finally, we will explore recent brain studies of higher states of consciousness.

 

All materials will be available online. Textbook purchases are encouraged (about 20 dollars). Small group discussions (wikis) will be webcast on Saturdays and Sundays, then archived.

 

See full syllabus and registration details at www.consciousness.arizona.edu.

 

Sponsored by the University of Arizona Center for Consciousness Studies.

 


Soon we will have a downloadable copy of my 1988 book, A Cognitive Theory of Consciousness (published by Cambridge University Press, but soon to be in the Google book domain). This book is widely cited as the source of Global Workspace Theory, a framework for scientific evidence about human consciousness. It is still the most complete statement of the theory.

 

 

A popular account is given in: In the Theater of Consciousness, the Workspace of the Mind

 

Textbook for the WebCourse.

 

I hope to use this wiki site for discussions, seminars, web links, and references, as well.

 

Blog updates ...

 

Emerging questions, and maybe a few answers...

 

Working papers on Global Workspace Theory (GWT), and discussion of other efforts to try to understand one of the most intriguing mysteries in the biosphere ...

 

 

  • The brain basis of consciousness is now a lively frontier question. (See SCIENCE magazine, 2006)

 

  • GWT suggests some ideas for that search. Professors Stan Dehaene and Murray Shanahan, and their coworkers, have pursued varieties of "neuronal global workspace theory".  Jim Newman, before his tragic death, made important contributions. A number of others have provided ideas, questions, and challenges.

 

  • Parallel efforts are coming from a number of researchers. I will try to keep a list of links and references here.

 

  • Opportunities for you to participate ...
