There is a traditional scepticism about whether the world "out there" really is as we perceive it. A new breed of hyper-sceptics now challenges whether we even have the perceptual experience we think we have. According to these writers, perceptual consciousness is a kind of false consciousness. This view grows out of the discovery of such phenomena as change blindness and inattentional blindness, which show that we can all be quite blind to changes taking place before our very eyes. Such radical scepticism has acute and widespread implications for the study of perception and consciousness. The writings collected in this volume explore these implications. The contributors are scientists and philosophers at the forefront of this research, and include well-known authors such as psychologists Susan Blackmore and Arien Mack, and philosophers Andy Clark and Daniel Dennett. They have an gift for bringing these paradoxical issues to life and sharing their excitement with the non-specialist.

"This is a most impressive selection of essays on a central topic in cognitive science. Every essay has valuable points to make... This book is essential reading for any theorist interested in perception." -- Paul Coates * Human Nature Review * "Many contributions to consciousness debates have been ill informed or over subjective. This volume does not suffer from these deficiencies. The common thread of change blindness ensures that all contributions are grounded in at least one empirically robust effect. There is no doubt that this grounding advances the quality of debate about the nature of visual experience." -- Richard Cooper * Times Higher Education Supplement * "Noe's book is a well-balanced set of essays. There seems to be genuine controversy between the various contributors." -- Michael L. Anderson * Metapsychology *
