New Material for the Class on Consciousness

Hi scholars,

Following a lively first class, I’m posting a few links that will help us think about consciousness in (I hope) new and different ways.  I’m also posting a link of resources for thinking about literary theory and science fiction.

The first link is compliments of Michael Schuster.  This is the article he referenced during class.

For those of you who enjoyed The Brain with David Eagleman, here is a link to the first episode in the documentary series.

For those of you who would like to watch David Chalmer’s TED talk on consciousness, which comes highly recommended by Rachel, click here.

Lastly, if you are interested in learning more about literary theory and how it connects to science fiction, please visit this site.
