"...The main important point of this book is the capacity of the editors to put together different accounts about self-awareness that perfectly mix traditional and contemporary points of view about conscious states and the self. The diversity of thesis and conclusions included between the different chapters permits to take a panoramic look to the actual debate in philosophy of consciousness and self-awareness."

"...I'll lay my cards on the table right away and say that this is a good book. It's not too often that I read a collection such as this cover to cover, and I found doing so with this volume very rewarding. The book contains plenty of chewy philosophical argumentation and the, admittedly only occasional, references between papers were illuminating. There's a lot to learn, and to engage with, here.... It's a good book, with lots of careful papers and serious arguments. Anybody with even a passing interest in self-consciousness, consciousness or the self, cannot fail to learn something from its pages."
--Joel Smith, University of Manchester, Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews
“A wonderful collection of astute contributions from an array of disciplines that anyone interested in the interface between philosophy, the brain, neuropathology, and psychological disturbances will find fascinating.”
—Todd E. Feinberg, M.D., Professor of Psychiatry and Neurology, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai; author of From Axons to Identity: Neurological Explorations of the Nature of the Self
“This is a timely collection of philosophically sophisticated essays on psychopathologies and disturbances of consciousness and self-consciousness. It reflects some of the best work being done on connecting theories of consciousness with theories of mental disorder. It is a most welcome contribution to the field of philosophical psychopathology.”
—George Graham, Professor of Philosophy and Adjunct Faculty, Neuroscience Institute, Georgia State University; author of The Disordered Mind
“This stellar collection of essays breaks new ground in the study of consciousness, and is required reading for anyone interested in the nature of human experience and the pathologies to which it is subject.”
—Tim Bayne, Professor of Philosophy, University of Western Ontario and University of Manchester; author of The Unity of Consciousness and Thought: A Very Short Introduction
