By showing how unethical behavior negatively impacts the emotional and physical health of a wide range of people, potential perpetrators will better understand the severe personal and societal consequences of acting unethically and, therefore, be less likely to engage in such behavior.

We know what it is like to be conscious – to have awareness, a conscious ‘mind’, but who, or what, are ‘we’ who know such things? How is the subjective nature of phenomenal experience – our ‘inner life’ – to be explained in scientific terms? What consciousness actually is, and how it comes about remain unknown.

    • I’m glad you find the collection of resources helpful. To be very honest however, being a full time student, I haven’t had a lot of time to keep this site current, and wouldn’t be surprised if some of those links are out of date. Once I have the time to keep up with it again – as well as migrate my domain to a new server – I’ll likely work to update and make this resource list much better.
