Susan BlackmoreSuggests that the problem of consciousness in contemporary psychology is that consciousness in itself is an illusion, which is why we have a problem identifying it, somewhat like seeing a mirage in the desert and wondering where the water is. Interesting writing, although I am not sure she has solved anything, or even claimed to have done so.

Two Dogmas of Empiricism (PDF)Classic article by Willard Van Orman Quine - Thesis: "Modern empiricism has been conditioned in large part by two dogmas. One is a belief in some fundamental cleavage between truths which are analytic, or grounded in meanings independently of matters of fact and truths which are synthetic, or grounded in fact. The other dogma is reductionism: the belief that each meaningful statement is equivalent to some logical construct upon terms which refer to immediate experience. Both dogmas, I shall argue, are ill founded. One effect of abandoning them is, as we shall see, a blurring of the supposed boundary between speculative metaphysics and natural science. Another effect is a shift toward pragmatism."
