On the Evolution of Conscious Sensation, Conscious Imagination, and Consciousness of Self

Editor: Robert G. Kunzendorf
Kunzendorf’s post-Darwinian double-aspect theory of consciousness shows how heat nociceptors—free nerve endings with painful subjective qualities—evolved into 'surface heat' and 'distal heat' receptors embodying calefactory and visual qualia, respectively. Evidence that visual sensations are retinopetally innervated by all warm-blooded animals, and self-consciously 'imagined' by some, is subsequently explored. provides an honest portrayal of typical, albeit marginalized, working conditions in much of academia by describing direct, and local, effects of austerity and budget cuts on technical communication programs in both small and large institutions and recounting successful and unsuccessful strategies for creating sustainable futures.
