The Dimensions Of Experience

Published by Xlibris
Evolutionary theory is recognized as one of the most powerful approaches we have for understanding ourselves. But it has yet to be applied to our most essential feature, consciousness. This book tells a plausible story of how consciousness evolved, beginning with the simplest forms of existence. Citing recent studies in animal learning, perception and behavior, together with molecular biology, cell biology and neurophysiology, the book shows how dimensions of experienced space and time, together with increasing awareness of self and other, emerged in association with hierarchical complexity of information processing entities. This is the first complete history of consciousness ever written.
