The User Illusion: Cutting Consciousness Down To Size

Tor Norretranders
The User Illusion

‘Finally a book that really does explain consciousness. And what a marvelous story it is, too, told with style, grace, humour, and intelligence. Your view of consciousness will never be the same after you’ve gone on the tour of the mind and spirit given here. If you’re only going to read one book on consciousness, make it this one.’ John L Casti, author of The Cambridge Quintet

‘Building on wonderfully rich and fascinating ideas… Norretranders works up to his main thesis, that consciousness is in essence a hoax, an illusion.’ Douglas Hoffstadter
