Between Ourselves: Second-person Issues in the Study of Consciousness

Front Cover
Evan Thompson
Imprint Academic, 2001 - Psychology - 313 pages

The first volume in this series (The View from Within, ed. Francisco Varela and Jonathan Shear) was a study of first-person approaches to the study of consciousness. Second-person 'I-You' relations are central to human life yet have been neglected in consciousness research. This book puts that right, and goes further by including descriptions of animal 'person-to-person' interactions from primatologists Barbara Smuts and Sue Savage-Rumbaugh. Other contributions are drawn from fields as diverse as Japanese philosophy and Buddhist studies, neurophysiology, phenomenology and neuropsychology - including clinical studies on autism and face-recognition disorders.
