Raw feeling : a philosophical account of the essence of consciousness by Robert Kirk ( Book )
19 editions published between 1984 and 2011 in English and held by 467 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Consciousness is a perennial source of mystification in the philosophy of mind: how could processes in the brain amount to conscious experiences? Robert Kirk uses the notion of 'raw feeling' to bridge the intelligibility gap between our knowledge of ourselves as physical organisms and our knowledge of ourselves as subjects of experience; he argues that there is no need for recourse to dualism or private mental objects. The task is to understand how the truth about raw feeling could be strictly implied by narrowly physical truths. Kirk's explanation turns on an account of what it is to be a subject of conscious perceptual experience. He offers penetrating analyses of the philosophical problems of consciousness and suggests novel solutions which, unlike their rivals, can be accepted without gritting one's teeth

Zombies and consciousness by Robert Kirk ( Book )
19 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 408 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"His book has two main aims. One is to demolish the zombie idea once and for all. There are plenty of objections to it in the literature, but they lack intuitive appeal. He offers a striking new argument which reveals fundamental confusions in the implied conception of consciousness. His other main contribution is to develop a fresh and original approach to the true nature of phenomenal consciousness."--Jacket
