Philosophers on Consciousness

Jack Symes, PhD researcher in philosophy at the University of Liverpool and producer of The Panpsycast, has announced the publication of his forthcoming book, Philosophers on Consciousness: Talking about the Mind. The book – which will be the first in Symes’s Talking about Philosophy series – will be published by Bloomsbury and available internationally from 10th February 2022.

Philosophers on Consciousness will feature remastered interviews and original essays from the world’s leading thinkers, including Susan Blackmore, David Chalmers, Patricia Churchland, Daniel Dennett, Frank Jackson and Galen Strawson. 

The book has already received several appraisals – including the following review from writer and actor Stephen Fry:

“Here are some of the world's most notable and respected thinkers, each adding their thoughts on the field known as ‘philosophy of mind’… all communicating with remarkable clarity and approachable ease. Jack Symes guides us charmingly and authoritatively through… with a wit and freshness that enlivens without trivializing. It cannot be common to find Toblerones, Paul Rudd and Adam Sandler sharing pages with the most distinguished philosophers alive. This is a book that everyone interested in the human mind will fall on like... like a hungry student on a Toblerone.” – Stephen Fry
