Who are we? What is consciousness and how does it relate to what goes on in the brain? What is it to be a unique individual? These are some of the most hotly contested questions in science and philosophy today and they have a direct bearing on the way we understand ourselves. Looking at the subject from a refreshingly new angle, Mel Thompson argues that while traditional questions about how mind relates to the body go some way to explaining who we are, ultimately they fail to reveal the heart of the matter - the self that we experience.
Mel Thompson has a PhD in philosophy of religion and is a full-time writer. His books include Introduction to Philosophy and Ethics and Philosophers Behaving Badly.
