  1. Life is consciousness Emmet FoxI discovered Consciousness and Its Implications on a lower shelf in the philosophy section of Half Price Books It wasn t my intention to seek out these lectures, but I m a fan of The Great Courses in general and Professor Daniel Robinson in particular Plus, it didn t seem sensible to pay 134.95 to buy the course new at a later time when a used version was staring at me for 7.99.The discipline of phenomenology or the philosophy of consciousness is significantly inv [...]


  2. A great book course Which explains different theories of consciousness with a critical view.


  3. I think the question of consciousness is an interesting one and I ve read a few books on the topic I tried listening to this lecture series once before, but gave up in favor of something immediately interesting I decided to give it another try, and since I had nothing else on hand I managed to make it through a few long drives helped the process Overall it is a disappointing work, somewhat disorganized and rambling, but also seemingly committed to exploring the idea from a very old fashioned ph [...]


  4. There doesn t seem to be any structure to the course, it s of a sampling of different themes ideas experiments in the problem of consciousness My impression is that, keeping the first lesson first and the last lesson last, you could go through all other lessons randomly It is clearly beneath his two other courses The Great Ideas of Philosophy and The Great Ideas of Psychology I speak only of what I know Despite all that, it is still worth a try if you like Daniel N Robinson s style some of his [...]


  5. A great course that make one think It really could have been complete with other philosophical and religious perspectives in addition to the things he mentioned in the lecture Nevertheless, it was very thought provoking and it brings one to contemplate the nature of humanity and life in general and thoughtful musing on mortality and birth The human condition is intrinsically interwoven throughout these subject and the course therefore enhances one s perspective on humanity I highly recommend th [...]



  6. Mental gymnastics are a fun diversion, but when you strip away all the parts that are just debates over terminology and taxonomy the significant part of what remains should and is being addressed by hard science What can we know about the mind Plenty, lets talk to some neuroscientists Is physics complete The schools of folks debating that one are physicists on all sides disagreeing with each other and furiously doing math.Time is spent debating what can be known, instead of working to discover w [...]


  7. TOTALLY excellent and informative robinson ties up many a loose end for this reader for which i am deeply grateful will be giving this audio a second and third listen thank you, dnr well done and appreciated for your effort and knowledge in this fascinating and complex matter of human consciousness


  8. Along my annual reading challenge I had intent to close physics related reading by something that will smoothly shift me into the next topic, into the neuroscience I needed concise and rapid shift, thus came my decision to take Consciousness and Its Implications from professor Daniel N Robinson I rated it with 3 , and let me clear it why I ve got all I ve required It was rapid, it was concise But, what I didn t count with it was irritatingly, fiendishly brilliant A multiply time I had intent int [...]


  9. I have some mixed feelings about this courseThe presentation oscillates between just touching upon the surface e.g the discussion of the Chinese room to being just right and even innovative e.g the itch twist on Marie s red color experiment.There is no specific version of conscious theories defended in these lectures but there are some important missing ideas like Dennett s multiple drafts and HOT theories.


  10. There is no consensus by scientists about how consciousness comes to be It is certainly related to our physical brain, but it seems to be something than that Dr Robinson surveys a number of the current theories about consciousness and the arguments for and against these theories, without coming to a conclusion great food for thought


  11. I listened to the first lecture in this course, but didn t feel the desire to wade through the other 11 Not having studied even basic philosophy, I found it too intangible, even irrelevant and I recognize that the fault here is probably with my lack of knowledge rather than the course So overall I d say this one is not for the general public.


  12. Great course from one of my favorite teachers Only knocked down a star due to the extreme complexity of some of the concepts which is normal for this subject but was especially tricky in audio format.



  13. Outstanding Another great course from The Teaching Company Professor Robinson is simply the best The seventy seventh albeit on tape that I have finished this year.
