Abstract

Consciousness and the Self is an edited collection, so it is not necessary that the individual contributors share the same point of view, and it is clear that they differ on several important matters--otherwise the individual essays would be of little significance. However, they all share a central concern, that of understanding the nature of conscious experience. Stuart and I found that there were indeed important differences between the CatS and IPIE groundings in observations of phenomena: the contributors to CatS do not cite a single example of actually occurring inner experience whereas IPIE provides over a hundred examples of concretely-existing-at-some-moment, carefully examined inner experience. This “review” explores that difference.
