Abstract:

Baars (1997) presents a clear and productive approach to consciousness as a scientific issue. My commentary is motivated by this positive assessment in order to underline what I see as important limitations in the sketch we are presented with, and which are close to my own research interests. I will concentrate only on two fundamental questions here: (1) the still misleading nature of the theatre metaphor for consciousness in spite of Baars’ radically new interpretation; (2) the still unexamined naivite in regards to question of methodologies of access to experience, in spite of Baars’ avowed interest in linking to first-person experience.
