What is consciousness? How do physical processes in the brain give rise to the self-aware mind and to feelings as profoundly varied as love or hate, aesthetic pleasure or spiritual yearning?

Dennett, Gerald Edelman, and Roger Penrose, all firing volleys in what has come to be called the consciousness wars.
