Passionate about consciousness
I am Associate Professor in Philosophy at Central European University in Budapest (a unique and wonderful institution).
My main research focus is trying to explain how the brain produces consciousness. I think we need to radically rethink our understanding of matter in order to explain consciousness, in something like the way Einstein radically rethought the nature of space and time.
My first book 'Consciousness and Fundamental Reality' has just been published by Oxford University Press, available for a brief period at a discount here.
I also have a sideline in political philosophy, focusing on issues pertaining to taxation, globalisation and social justice.
Having published a lot of stuff for specialists, my priority now it try to communicate with a broader audience. My blog is aimed at a general audience, I have quite a few recently published articles linked to in my publications, and I am currently working on a book on consciousness aimed at a general audience.
