My Interview with Scott Barry Kaufman
I spoke with Scott about why I wrote CONSCIOUS, the hard problem, the function of consciousness, free will, and other topics.
As accessible and enlightening as Seven Brief Lessons on Physics and Astrophysics for People in a Hurry, this mind-expanding dive into the mystery of consciousness is an illuminating meditation on the self, free will, and felt experience.
“In this gem of a book, Annaka Harris tackles consciousness controversies with incisive rigor and clarity, in a style that’s accessible and captivating.”
“CONSCIOUS offers the clearest, most compelling explanation that I’ve seen of consciousness. If you’ve ever wondered how you have the capacity to wonder, some fascinating insights await you in these pages.”
“There is a profound intellectual adventure awaiting the reader of this exquisite book.”
“Wild ideas are on the table—you’ll come away with an appreciation of the major conflicts and the high stakes that come with any attempt to understand how consciousness really works.”
