By Harry Binswanger
Consciousness is the faculty of awareness, of perceiving that which exists.
This lecture presents the opening, foundational section of Dr. Binswanger’s future book on consciousness. Since the book is addressed to a general audience, this lecture does not presuppose any prior knowledge of Objectivism. Topics covered include: the axioms of existence and consciousness, self-evidency, the Primacy of Existence, consciousness as an active process.
