I can't resist asking this question. What did you think about How Do We Know What We Know?
This chapter was a hodgepodge of ideas, which didn't fit together that well despite some similar motifs. Burton started off with a logical and reasonable argument that
He discusses blindsight, which I read about in Phantoms in the Brain
as a neurological demonstration that the part of the brain associated with the senses is separate from the part of the brain that is self-aware.
The Challenger study, if viewed honestly, shows rather strongly that our memories of our own lives aren't as accurate as we believe them to be. Ironically, I read about that study over a decade ago, and reminded me of where I was when I heard about the Challenger explosion, making me more confident of my memory.
While much of that chapter was material I'd seen before in various places, it was fine to be exposed to it again, all in one place.
