In #DisturbedConsciousness , philosophers and other scholars examine various #psychopathologies in light of specific philosophical theories of consciousness. The contributing authors—some of them discussing or defending their own theoretical work—consider not only how a theory of consciousness can account for a specific psychopathological condition but also how the characteristics of a #psychopathology might challenge such a theory. Thus one essay defends the higher-order thought (HOT) theory of consciousness against the charge that it cannot account for somatoparaphrenia (a delusion in which one denies ownership of a limb). Another essay argues that various attempts to explain away such #anomalies within subjective theories of consciousness fail.
Other essays consider such topics as the application of a model of unified consciousness to cases of brain bisection and dissociative identity disorder; prefrontal and parietal underconnectivity in autism and other psychopathologies; self-deception and the self-model theory of #subjectivity ; schizophrenia and the vehicle theory of #consciousness ; and a shift in emphasis away from an internal (or brainbound) approach to psychopathology to an interactive one. Each essay offers a distinctive perspective from the intersection of #philosophy , #consciousnessresearch , and #psychiatry .

VERY SPECIAL PEOPLE
This is a wonderful book about the struggles and lifes of real life human oddities. These "freaks" were forced into a life of being sideshow attractions. Drimmer really dives into their emotional existence. Some really famous side shows, and a ton of really great photos.
Trying out a new #app#moshow Very, very cool and fast rendering of photos to #slideshow . Of course, my problem is that I'm not trying to make cool slideshows, I'm trying to show #weather#anomalies and #sky#phenomenon and unusual #clouds and #chemtrails and in this slideshow it's impossible to tell what's what... The supposed #sun wasn't flashing or growing bigger or smaller but that doesn't make it any less weird! Anyway, great app for #unscientific slideshow endeavors!
