Reviews:

"Penetrating without being overwhelming, [Dialogue on Consciousness] informs and engages the student both at once. As it deftly uncovers the complexities besetting the meaning of human consciousness, it does ample justice to the current scholarly discussion. It is an unquestionably indispensable instructional tool. Indeed, the splendid glossary and judicious reading list taken alone more than justify the modest price of admission."
     —George Pollack, Fairleigh Dickinson University
