Of self and self awareness: The basic neuronal circuit in human consciousness and the generation of self
Journal of Consciousness Studies 15 (9):64-74 (2008)
|Abstract||The fascination of Velasquez's painting Las Meninas stems largely from the ambiguous relationship between the painting as a whole, viewed by a single perceiver, and the variety of different perceptual viewpoints it invites. This situation resonates strongly with a central puzzle in the study of consciousness: the apparent unity of perceptual experience despite multiple sense modalities. Understanding more of this latter might help to explain the way we respond to the painting.|
