    characters Þ Galileo's Error – Foundations for a New Science of Consciousness Galileo's Error – Foundations for a New Science of ConsciousnessVery enjoyable popular science book on the nature of consciousness The author is a professional philosopher and a big supporter of panpsychism Obscured by materialism for the last 100 years this view is currently becoming and fashionable And as the author puts it now represents a considerable minority The book is very accessible starts from zero knowledge of the problem and leads the reader through 3 main views on the nature of consciousness The author is good storyteller and competent in

    characters Þ Galileo's Error – Foundations for a New Science of Consciousness Galileo's Error – Foundations for a New Science of ConsciousnessFairly introductory investigation of consciousness that argues against materialism or physicalism as commonly understood It argues for panpsychism through the neutral monist route developed by Eddington and Russell in the 1920s Now I want to read his academic work to get a detailed argument

    characters Þ Galileo's Error – Foundations for a New Science of Consciousness Galileo's Error – Foundations for a New Science of ConsciousnessConsciousness is one of the deepest and most perplexing unresolved mysteries of the universe and it would take a fool to believe that we already have a conclusive explanation or that we even know what an explanation would look like If we’re honest we can

    characters Þ Galileo's Error – Foundations for a New Science of Consciousness Galileo's Error – Foundations for a New Science of ConsciousnessStarts off well with a good description of past and present theories of consciousness but once panpsychism is introduced things start to go downhill Materialism is criticized because it cannot explain the ualitative aspects of consciousness and dualism because there is no neurological evidence of a link between the brain and a disembodied mind Fair enough But

    characters Þ Galileo's Error – Foundations for a New Science of Consciousness Galileo's Error – Foundations for a New Science of ConsciousnessOne would think that we are uite far off from getting to know consciousness that we are in the dark Nothing is further from the truth given the progress of neuroscience Sure we haven't cracked the code yet but there are promising approaches to tackle a unifying theoryOne of these approaches is panpsychism Crazy as it sounds there is strong neuroscientific backing within the IIT community IIT stands for Integrated Information Theory and there scientists predict how information integration affects the manifestation of conscious brain states Turns out that the integrate

    characters Þ Galileo's Error – Foundations for a New Science of Consciousness Galileo's Error – Foundations for a New Science of ConsciousnessI really enjoyed reading this book and engaging with the arguments in it and it was a good and not overly partisan introduction to issues relating to consciousness However I disagreed with almost all aspects of the central argument of the book The author tries hard to distinguish himself from New Age philosophies but by the second last and most of all last chapter it becomes clear that underneath the philosophical curtain lies what is at its core New Age philosophy I felt that there was a bit of confusion between consciousness and free will early on and real confusion ab

    characters Þ Galileo's Error – Foundations for a New Science of Consciousness Galileo's Error – Foundations for a New Science of ConsciousnessThe first two sections are a very good read Goff explains consciousness as defined by various schools of thought and sets them against each other Dualism Materialism Illusionism Zombieism Phenomenal Concept Theory and Panpsychism He is very patient and very clear choosing a few examples and then walking us through using “thought experiments” to convey the subtle distinctionsThe weakest part of the book is the third section because Goff attempts to summarize ALL of the world’s spiritual traditions as being the viewpoint of a group he calls “mystics” and Goff tries to connect their views with the Western “panpsychists” who operate or less in the mainstream scientific community

    characters Þ Galileo's Error – Foundations for a New Science of Consciousness Galileo's Error – Foundations for a New Science of ConsciousnessThe perennial paradox underlying this book consciousness is a vividly real subjective experience yet science cannot explain it Does that mean consciousness is an illusion produced by brain mechanics or that science’s self imposed parameters render it incapable of exploring some of the world’s realitiesGoff explores the history science philosophy and arguments of both answers whi
