The book discusses the question of how two concepts of subjectivity—biophysically based and phenomenally based subjectivity—compare to the different concepts of unity that have been suggested in recent philosophical discussion. It concludes that both unity and subjectivity are co-constituted and co-occurrent, which makes impossible their clear-cut distinction and separate determination.

Keywords:   unity, experiential parts view, no experiential parts view, environment–brain unity, prephenomenal unity, phenomenal unity, consciousness, subjectivity, point of view, biophysically based subjectivity, phenomenally based subjectivity, biophysical convergence zones
