Susan Blackmore combines the latest scientific theories about mind, self, and consciousness with a lifetime's practice of Zen. Framed by ten critical questions that are derived from Zen's teachings, Zen and the Art of Consciousness explores how intellectual enquiry and meditation can expand your understanding and experience of consciousness and tackle some of today's greatest scientific mysteries.
Who are you? When are you? What were you conscious of a moment ago?
