Professor Anil Seth


A brilliant beast of a book. A wide ranging synthesis pulling together disparate stands from philosophy, science, literature, personal experience and speculation – this latter being the most exciting for me, despite some proposals being as yet unproven. Seth proposes to explain not just what and how we are, but probably provocative for some folks, why we are the way we are. Why do we have the feeling of continually being the same person? (when obviously I, at least, am not) Why do we have this feeling of being self aware? What is it for? Hugely inspirational – I filled up 10 pages with exuberant notes. Keep a pencil handy. — David Byrne


Insightful and profound. The nature of consciousness is still one of the hardest problems in science, but Anil Seth brings us closer than ever before to the answer. This a hugely important book. — Jim Al-Khalili


Anil Seth thinks clearly and sharply on one of the hardest problems of science and philosophy, cutting through weeds with a scientist’s mind and a storyteller’s skill. — Adam Rutherford


Seth provokes us to think about thinking. And he offers what the interested reader always needs – a book which makes complex ideas readable, relatable, and gripping. If you want to understand his subject better – he’ll help you. And who wouldn’t want to better understand consciousness? In our lives, there is nothing weirder or more fundamental. — Alex Garland ― director of EX MACHINA


Masterly . . . deftly weaves the philosophical, biological and personal with a lucid clarity and coherence that is thrilling to read . . . This much-anticipated book lays out his radical theory of our invented reality with accessible and compelling writing . . . meticulously researched . . . Being You is an exhilarating book: a vast-ranging, phenomenal achievement that will undoubtedly become a seminal text. –– Gaia Vince ― Guardian
