Recent work on consciousness

American Philosophical Quarterly 34 (4):379-404 (1997)
Abstract
This paper surveys current theories on the nature of conscious experience, from traditional central state identity theories and functionalism, to more recent higher-order and representationalist theories. It is concluded that no current theory really solves the fundamental problem of how to incorporate conscious experience into the physical world, though much progress has been made
