    ____________

    Are other animals, or even plants, conscious?

    Can we create conscious robots?

    Are we able to assume the consciousness of someone else?


    We all experience the world differently.

    REALITY is shaped by our individual memories.

    So we respond to THE WORLD in our own ways.

    Our UNIQUE EXPERIENCE underpins what it means to be CONSCIOUS.

    This raises so many questions such as where does consciousness live? And what is it for?

    Discover the answers and more inside Hannah Critchlow's Ladybird Expert - Consciousness, the thrilling and accessible account that explains what it means to be conscious - from what defines it, to questioning the existence of free will.
