Product description


"Consciousness is a major neuroscience mystery. Since bright, ambitious young people have solved many of our scientific mysteries, this young man's remarkable synthesis of current consciousness theory and research shouldn't surprise us. I expect that this book is simply the first of many contributions Elie Sternberg will make during his career."

Robert Sylwester, Emeritus Professor of Education
University of Oregon, author of How To Explain a Brain
Columnist for the online journal "Brain Connection"

"Elie Sternberg gives a fascinating and accurate account of the issues and arguments for and concerning the possibility of intelligent computers. His book is not only exciting reading, it also shows good judgment in helping the reader decide which arguments to accept."

Hubert Dreyfus, University of California, Berkeley
Philosopher and author of What Computers Still Can't Do
