Consciousness For Dummies

There is unfortunately no Consciousness For Dummies. You have For Dummies books in practically every other discipline.  Guess the editors of the series feel consciousness and stupidity are oxymorons. Actually their deduction, as reasonable as ot may seem, 
Is not correct. You have lots of people with highly developed thinking who behave like idiots. The real question is how can someone who's supposed to be so smart act like a jackass? Hitler was no sloth or idler. He even wrote a book, Mein Kampf, whose title the Danish writer Karl Ove Knausgard, obviously thought was so good, he appropriated it. The fact is, there is no dearth of consciousness even though the majority of humans, the one species that has a monopoly on it, runaround like chickens with their heads cut off. BTW, most observers note that the color of consciousness is olive green.

read the Kirkus review of The Kafka Studies Department by Francis Levy
