Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Science magazine recently listed consciousness as one of the top unsolved problems in science. But as Talis Bachmann and his coauthors show in this book, the fact that human consciousness is unsolved doesn't mean it is unexplored. Careful studies of conscious phenomena go back as far as Newton's color experiments and 'Aristotle's illusion.' This book presents a solid sampling of experimental phenomena that cast light on human consciousness. It is a useful, brief manual for courses focused on the empirical study of human consciousness." —Bernard J. Baars, Senior Fellow in Theoretical Neurobiology, The Neurosciences Institute

"Bachmann, Breitmeyer, and Ögmen have done neuroscientists, psychologists, and philosophers an enormous service. They have put together a single comprehensive dictionary of the experimental paradigms and phenomena that characterize research in consciousness. This book will not only be useful for students, but also for established investigators working in this exciting field. Philosophers, who are increasingly drawing on empirical work to bolster their ideas, will find it particularly valuable." —Melvyn A. Goodale, Canada Research Chair in Visual Neuroscience, Department of Psychology, University of Western Ontario

"Experimental Phenomena of Consciousness offers a very compact and handy compendium of the relevant, empirically approachable aspects of consciousness. It is a handbook that every student of consciousness should own." —Christof Koch, Lois and Victor Troendle Professor of Cognitive and Behavioral Biology, California Institute of Technology

"This dictionary is an indispensable little guide to the wonders of conscious sensation and perception. It provides both the student and the researcher with a lucid introduction to the variety and multiplicity of conscious phenomena that, ultimately, the science of consciousness should explain." —Antti Revonsuo, Professor, University of Turku, Finland and University of Skövde, Sweden

"Only rarely is a reference work unflaggingly entertaining, instructive, and worth reading through from beginning to end; this is such a work. Bachmann, Breitmeyer, and Ögmen present a collection of about 125 psychological effects that involve sensory consciousness. Each one is intriguing, and some are spectacular." —Choice

"...slim, instructive, well-referenced, and also entertaining...This is a pioneering "dictionary" of counterintuitive phenomena, concisely but clearly annotated and referenced. Specialist readers will discover intriguing unfamiliar phenomena. Generalists will be offered a glimpse of how carefully and confidently (and yet fallibly) the visual mind/brain edits its representation of the world."—Quarterly Review of Biology
