[Comp-neuro] On the Hard problem of consciousness


SPECIAL ISSUE: On the Hard problem of consciousness

Philosophers have put forward a series of metaphysics, while engineers claim that information science and computation explains everything there is about brain function and there is no hard problem of consciousness. Cleary there needs to be a middle ground because neither of these extremes is leading anywhere. This middle ground is neuropsychoanalysis. This special issue will  unite the best of the best philosophers, physicists and psychiatrists in the attempt to solve the hard problem of consciousness.
