The Global Workspace

(p.38) 3 The Global Workspace
Consciousness and Moral Responsibility

Neil Levy

Oxford University Press

This chapter sets out to defend a version of the global workspace account of consciousness associated with Bernard Baars, according to which consciousness plays the role of integrating information. The account is defended against possible objections, such as the objection that might be mounted on the basis of Ap Dijksterhuis’s work, which seems to show that content integration can happen independently of consciousness. Some reasons to prefer a broadcasting version of the global workspace theory, rather than the access account recently defended by Jesse Prinz, are given.

Keywords:   Bernard Baars, global workspace theory, Ap Dijksterhuis, Jesse Prinz
