Why Consciousness Studies?

It is the subject for cutting egde interdisciplinary research in the 21st century with questions concerning life in general and human mind and cognition in particular.Because of developments in the areas of neurosciences, neuropsychology, neurophilosophy, relevant areas of physics and cosmology over the past 20 years, this field has become an active area of research in various countries. There have been more than a hundred books published on the related topics in recent years.

The Way Forward

Today, consciousness studies have implications in varied planes of human interactions questioning our fundamental assumptions about origins of life, nature of subjective experiences, and human wellbeing. Along side is the pertinent enquiry into the presence and nature of consciousness in non-human species.
