This review is from: The Character of Consciousness (Philosophy of Mind) (Paperback)
I always enjoy listening to Chalmers discussing the "Hard Problem" - though I admit he frequntly leaves me exhausted!
This valuable book lays out much of his work on the subject over the past thirty years. From its first pages Chalmers accepts that this book (of nearly 600 pages) might appear "a fragmented read" and, in a score of introductory pages, he gives detailed, helpful advice to readers on how they might selectively choose their way through the contents. Thus, as he suggests, I dip into the contents, as and when I please, enjoying much and hearing his voice as I do so. Not always so, however, some chapters are tough!
Perhaps one day my Mind will comprehend it all. Meanwhile the book remains on my desk, close at hand, not on my book-shelves. Thank you Mr. Chalmers.
