Abstract
Recently philosopher David Chalmers published his second book. As the first one, the main theme is consciousness. This collection of papers is divided into six parts by the author. They are the problems, the science, the metaphysics, the concepts, the contents, and the unity of consciousness. They cover most aspects of consciousness discussed in philosophy of mind. Part II (the science) and part IV (concepts) can be seen as the epistemology of consciousness; part V (the contents) and part VI (the unity) can be seen as further aspects of the metaphysics of consciousness. Thus, we can invoke the familiar metaphysics / epistemology distinction to conceptualize Chalmers's project of understanding consciousness.
