Much work is aimed at accommodating consciousness within the currently dominant physicalist world picture. This book is a comprehensive and sometimes impassioned attack to biologize consciousness by explaining its origin in evolutionary terms and identifying mental phenomena with brain processes- to computerize it by identifying mind with the supposed computational activity of the brain- and to empty or eliminate it by denying the reality of qualia.

Raymond Talliss critique concludes with a long look at man--the explicit animal--that makes the irreducible mystery of human consciousness impossible to overlook or deny.
