Consciousness: An Afterthought
Harnad, Stevan (1982) Consciousness: An Afterthought. Cognition and Brain Theory, 5, 29 - 47.
ABSTRACT: Our sense that we do something deliberately may be an afterthought that arises after our brains have already triggered our action unconsciously. Consciousness itself may be a similar illusory afterthought, with no direct causal role. In any case, Methodological epiphenomenalism, together with the Turing Test, seem to be be the best strategy for cognitive modelling.
