The ego tunnel : the science of the mind and the myth of the self by Thomas Metzinger ( Book )
15 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 1,450 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Metzinger ultimately argues that we must be willing to engage with serious and pressing ethical questions as well as cultural consequences that will result from a new image of the "self" and the emerging neurotechnology of consciousness. In a time when the science of cognition is becoming as controversial as evolution, The Ego Tunnel provides an innovative take on the mystery of the mind."--BOOK JACKET
Being no one the self-model theory of subjectivity by Thomas Metzinger ( )
19 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 1,355 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In Being No One, Metzinger, a German philosopher, draws strongly on neuroscientific research to present a representationalist and functional analysis of what a consciously experienced first-person perspective actually is. Building a bridge between the humanities and the empirical sciences of the mind, he develops new conceptual toolkits and metaphors; uses case studies of unusual states of mind such as agnosia, neglect, blindsight, and hallucinations; and offers new sets of multilevel constraints for the concept of consciousness. Metzinger's central question is: How exactly does strong, consciously experienced subjectivity emerge out of objective events in the natural world? His epistemic goal is to determine whether conscious experience, in particular the experience of being someone that results from the emergence of a phenomenal self, can be analyzed on subpersonal levels of description. He also asks if and how our Cartesian intuitions that subjective experiences as such can never be reductively explained are themselves ultimately rooted in the deeper representational structure of our conscious minds." "Metzinger introduces two theoretical entities - the "phenomenal self-model" and the "phenomenal model of the intentionality relation"--That may form the decisive conceptual link between first-person and third-person approaches to the conscious mind and between consciousness research in the humanities and in the sciences. He also discusses the roots of intersubjectivity, artificial subjectivity (the issue of nonbiological phenomenal selves), and connections between philosophy of mind and ethics."--Jacket

Der Ego-Tunnel : eine neue Philosophie des Selbst: von der Hirnforschung zur Bewusstseinsethik by Thomas Metzinger ( Book )
9 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in German and held by 104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Unser "Selbst" existiert gar nicht. Das bewusst erlebte Ich wird lediglich von unserem Gehirn erzeugt, und was wir wahrnehmen, ist nichts als "ein virtuelles Selbst in einer virtuellen Realität". Dies beweisen, so der Philosoph und Bewusstseinsforscher Thomas Metzinger, die Erkenntnisse der aktuellen Forschung. Aber was bedeutet das für unser Menschenbild? Was sind die technologischen und kulturellen Konsequenzen? Brauchen wir neben der Neuroethik auch eine Bewusstseinsethik? In einer Zeit, in der Hirnforschung, Kognitionswissenschaften und Neuroethik so kontrovers diskutiert werden wie einst die Evolutionstheorie, eröffnet Der Ego-Tunnel einen ebenso faszinierenden wie fundierten Zugang zur geheimnisvollen Welt des menschlichen Geistes

Who should have access to our thoughts, and to what degree? This program presents some of the current scientific research on the thought processes of the human brain, with special attention paid to its clinical applications and its ethical implications. German philosophers Thomas Metzinger and John-Dylan Haynes explain neuroethics, or the social, legal, and ethical repercussions of brain research. In addition, research scientists, such as Harvard professor Alvaro Pascual-Leone, demonstrate how their virtual reality programs, powered by computers and the human brain, can improve the lives of stroke patients and people with paraplegia
