Vieira (contact if this is your choice).


This book could support your practice, your course requirement, or be unrelated to any other assignment.


This choice must be approved by Dr. Welsch, so do not purchase without her approval.  Submit ( copy & paste preferable) title, date of publication, author, number of pages, and review.  If it is not clear why this is about consciousness, but you believe it is what you need/want to read, write a paragraph defending your choice.
