I am happy to announce that the title of this post is the title of the first book to be officially accepted in the Springer book series Studies in Brain and Mind under its new editor-in-chief and editorial board. I expect the book to be out later this year or next year at the latest.
In the book, Elizabeth Irvine argues for a kind of consciousness eliminativism: there are serious enough methodological problems with the so-called scientific study of consciousness that “consciousness” is not a viable scientific concept. It’s a novel and provocative argument that deserves attention.
There are several other exciting book projects in the pipeline. Meanwhile, new manuscripts and book proposals are welcome.
