John Searle: Our shared condition -- consciousness

In this talk, philosopher John Searle welcome the studying human consciousness by neuroscience. While accepting consciousness as a biological phenomenon of important brain processes that cause awareness, he points out that consciousness is not just a byproduct of brain stimulation.

In his contribution to the Philosophy of mind - that branch of philosophy exploring the nature of the mind, mental processes, mental functions, mental properties- and consciousness, Searle views the relationship of the mind-body as one key issue in the philosophy of consciousness, although there are other aspects concerning the nature of mind that do not involve a relationship with the physical body, i.e. how consciousness manifests in experiential knowledge and the nature of particular mental states.
