Nova Publishers, 2007 - Medical - 304 pages
Consciousness is a quality of the mind generally regarded to comprise qualities such as subjectivity, self-awareness, sentience, sapience, and the ability to perceive the relationship between oneself and one's environment. It is a subject of much research in philosophy of the mind, psychology, neurology, and cognitive science. This book presents a compilation of new and significant research on the many facets of consciousness. These include psychoenergetic studies, neurobiological hypothesis, theories on unconsciousness and psychoanalytic theories relating to sexual experiences.
