Are We Explaining Consciousness Yet?
Dennett, Daniel
Cognition, v79 n1-2 p221-37 Apr 2001
Maintains that theorists are converging on a version of the global neuronal workspace model of consciousness, but that there are residual confusions to be dissolved. Asserts that global accessibility is not the "cause" of consciousness, it "is" consciousness. Argues that like fame, consciousness is not a momentary condition or a purely dispositional state, but rather a matter of actual influence over time. (Author/KB)
