01. The Significance of Consciousness

Princeton University Press, 1998.

SignificanceOfBook Charles Siewert presents a distinctive approach to consciousness that emphasizes our first-person knowledge of experience and argues that we should grant consciousness, understood in this way, a central place in our conception of mind and intentionality.

David Chalmers:

"This is a marvelous book, full of subtle, thoughtful, and original argument.... The discussion is full of insight and a pleasure to read. Siewert's book advances the debate over consciousness on a number of fronts, and should become a standard in the field.
