The strength of Chalmers book is in philosophically relating different kinds of theoretical approaches to consciousness and especially explaining why a reductionist explanation is unsatisfactory. But by not working with the phenomenon itself and trying to relate its various forms to both biological and social facts, Chalmers has iroinically missed the opportunity to elevate his study above the reductionist approach. What is needed now is another book titled, The Conscious Animal: In search of a fundamental theory.
