Centre for Consciousness

El Centre for Consciousness de la Universidad Nacional de Australia se fundó en Agosto de 2004 como parte del proyecto David Chalmers’ ARC Federation Fellowship. La misión del proyecto era la siguiente (en inglés):

This project aims to develop a research centre that will be a world leader in the study of consciousness. The focus will be the question: how does human consciousness represent the world? The science of consciousness has seen explosive growth internationally in the last decade, but the relationship between consciousness and representation is not well-understood. Through local and international collaboration, researchers will develop a framework for understanding the representational content of consciousness and will analyze experimental work at the leading edge of neuroscience and cognitive science. This will help us to understand the nature of consciousness itself.

El centro se basa especialmente en la naturaleza de la conciencia, la naturaleza de la representación e intencionalidad, y la relación entre estos dominios. Se tienen también en cuenta otras áreas anejas a la folosofía y la ciencia cognitiva para tomar un enfoque amplio del problema.
