Abstract:

One of the striking, even amusing, spectacles to be enjoyed at the many workshops and conferences on consciousness these days is the breathtaking overconfidence with which laypeople hold forth about the nature of consciousness-- their own in particular, but everybody's by extrapolation. Everybody's an expert on consciousness, it seems, and it doesn't take any knowledge of experimental findings to secure the home truths these people enunciate with such conviction. One of my goals over the years has been to shatter that complacency, and secure the scientific study of consciousness on a proper footing.
