By Harry Binswanger
In these three path-breaking lectures, Dr. Binswanger uses the distinction between the what (the object) and the how (the means) of consciousness as the framework for presenting a causal perspective on awareness. In this context, he explains new ideas he has developed concerning the nature of both the perceptual and conceptual levels.
- the primacy of the what over the how
- the consciousness-brain relationship
- the sensation-perception distinction
- the integration of sensations into percepts
- two views of awareness
- fallibility and volition
- the Kantian inversion
- paralyzing the how
- consciousness, values, and life: why consciousness must be selfish.
