Outline of a general methodology for consciousness research

Anthropology and Philosophy 3 (2):43-56 (1999)
In spite of the enormous interdisciplinary interest in consciousness these <span class='Hi'>daysspan>, sorely lacking are general methodologies in terms of which individual research efforts across disciplines can be seen as contributing to a common end. In the paper I outline such a methodology. The central idea is that empirically studying our conception of consciousnesswhat we have in mind when we think about consciousnesscan lead to progress on consciousness itself. The paper clarifies and motivates that idea.
