In this book John King aims to get to the heart of the matter of what having a mind entails by rejecting lots of views which he finds to be indefensible when closely scrutinised. Here is an excerpt: "As a contrast to these examples of mind without awareness it is worth considering the possibility that a human could have both a mind and awareness continuously. This possibility has supposedly been realised in various humans such as Thai Ngoc who claims to have been in a continuous state of awareness for thirty-three years. These various scenarios imply that there are several possible relationships between mind and awareness, and suggest that whilst the two phenomena may co-occur, that they are fundamentally different phenomena. How might one object to the conclusion that mind and awareness are fundamentally different phenomena?"
