A non-technical summary of my e-book (for people who don't like philosophy very much)

NOTE: For a better argued and more up-to-date treatment of what it means to have a "minimal mind" (discussed in chapter two) and what kinds of consciousness humans and other animals possess (discussed in chapter four) the reader might like to refer to my online thesis.

NOTE: The online bibliography includes references to ALL works cited in the e-book. All links are current as of December 2005.
