PSY 230 - Psychology of Consciousness

One of the most fundamental questions human beings face is this: Why are we conscious? How do our minds come to have a subjective awareness of the world? The sense of awareness of the world is a deeply familiar feeling, yet satisfying explanations of why we are conscious and what consciousness is for remain elusive. This course explores the question from a variety of viewpoints, including the philosophical, cognitive, and neuroscientific, introducing a number of perspectives and key ideas from the interdisciplinary field of consciousness studies, with a particular focus on empirical investigation.
