Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Beautifully presented, this Oxford Companion is an absolute treasure trove of information relating to the subject of consciousness. The editors have obviously got things right, as far as I am concerned, and managed to get the best out of a huge range of very talented, expert contributors. A great addition to the Companion series!

Must-have for anyone interested in the study of consciousness 11 Sept. 2009
By Carla - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This is a remarkable selection of state-of-the-art, very readable articles on all aspects of the academic study of consciousness. (Thankfully, you will only find serious research here, no esoteric speculation.)
The editors did an excellent job of compiling an impressive list of relevant topics, finding the most prominent authors for the entries and making this book truly interdisciplinary by covering topics from different perspectives and disciplines (i.e., neuroscience, psychology, philosophy, ethology). They have also made sure that the entries are very readable so as to be informative for newcomers to the area and experts alike. Given the breadth of topics and the interdisciplinary nature of the book, this is an extremely valuable resource for students and more senior researchers alike. If you want to know where consciousness research is at today, where it came from, and where it is going, this is THE book for you!
The only complaint I have is the lack of an index, but apart from this technical detail, this is a truly marvelous book, which I highly recommend.
