(Human Quest series)
Throughout human history, the everyday miracle of consciousness, of being aware, has led philosophers, poets and mystics to believe that the essence of our being can exist independently of our bodies. This program examines: What do we know about human consciousness at the end of the 20th century? What progress has neuroscience made in explaining consciousness? How does our brain organize the sensory information it receives to create a coherent picture of our world? Will we develop computers that can mimic our sense of self?
