Our conscious minds are a wonderfully bizarre feature of us. This book aims to develop a scientific framework in which we can investigate and study consciousness as a perfectly natural and perfectly understandable phenomenon. In doing so, it also explores various skeptical charges made against this project, arguing for the most part that the skepticism is fueled by an ignorance of science in general and of how scientific explanations function in particular.
