my Limits of Consciousness final paper
The question was: How has your definition of consciousness changed since the beginning of class? Also, I make one reference to the book we read written by Susan Blackmore. My original definition isn’t important. I just want to hear what you guys think about all this!
My definition of consciousness is still similar to the one I wrote down on the first day of class, but it has expanded a bit more. I think consciousness is the wrong word altogether. It gets too confusing since no one has a good grip on what it means. Then, on the flipside I think awareness is too narrow to be the topic of discussion in this class. I think the fundamental feature that we want to talk about is the human’s ability to feel human. The ability to shine the light on the light-shiner.
I’m pretty sure animals have the ability to question themselves. Just not on the same level that humans do.
