The Consciousness Paradox: Consciousness, Concepts, and Higher-Order Thoughts
Call Number: B808.9 .G46 2012
Publication Date: 2012
In The Consciousness Paradox, Rocco Gennaro aims to solve an underlying paradox, namely, how it is possible to hold a number of seemingly inconsistent views, including higher-order thought (HOT) theory, conceptualism, infant and animal consciousness, concept acquisition, and what he calls the HOT-brain thesis. He defends and further develops a metapsychological reductive representational theory of consciousness and applies it to several importantly related problems.
Character, Self, and Sociability in the Scottish Enlightenment
Call Number: B1302.E65 C43 2011
Publication Date: 2011
This book is about Enlightenment ideas of "character." It argues for their central importance in eighteenth-century thought and culture. The specially commissioned essays in this volume are the first, collectively, to address the broader significance of Enlightenment "character," and to do so from an interdisciplinary perspective. The focus is on the Scottish Enlightenment, but contributors consider these debates in their international contexts and in relation to parallel developments in Britain, Europe, and America.
