Consciousness An Introduction
I have loved writing this book. For many years, working as a lecturer, I never seemed to have enough time to read or think or do the work I really wanted to do. So in September 2000 I left my job and threw myself into the vast and ever-expanding literature of consciousness studies. Writing the book meant spending over two years mostly at home completely by myself, reading, thinking, and writing, which was a real pleasure. I could never have worked this way without three things. First, there are all the conferences at which I have met other scientists and philosophers and been able to share ideas and arguments. Second, there is the internet and email, which make it possible to keep in touch with colleagues all over the world instantly without moving from my own desk. Third, there is the WWW, which has expanded beyond all recognition in the few years since I first thought of writing this book. I am constantly amazed at the generosity of so many people who give their time and effort to make their own work, and the work of others, freely available to us all. I could never have enjoyed working at home so much were it not for my wonderful family: my partner Adam Hart-Davis and my two children Emily and Jolyon Troscianko. Having Joly drawing the cartoons meant many happy battles over whether self is more like a candle, a raindrop, or bladderwrack seaweed, and what the Cartesian Theatre would look like if it existed. My thanks go to them all.
