Consciousness Books In philosophical and scientific discussion, 'consciousness' is related to the specific way in which humans are mentally aware in such a way that they distinguish clearly between themselves (the thing being aware) and all other things and events. This "self-awareness" may involve thoughts, sensations, perceptions, moods, emotions and dreams. Consciousness is the subject of much research in philosophy of mind, psychology, neuroscience, cognitive science, and artificial intelligence. The term "new science" was first introduced in 1964 by the late Nobel neuroscientist Dr. Roger Sperry (1913 - 1994). It is based on the premise that your consciousness - your point of focus which can be compared to a cursor on your computer screen - can create physical effects in your brain as well as the other way around. Because it believes that consciousness can cause physical change, the new science is also referred to as "the consciousness revolution."
