Chalmers presents the major arguments against materialist theories of consciousness, and then advances his own dualistic theory of consciousness based on "Shannon information partitions". He refers to his alternate view as naturalistic dualism.
The Conscious Mind has been reviewed journals such as Foundations of Physics, Psychological Medicine, Mind, The Journal of Mind and Behavior, and Australian Review of Books. The book was described by The Sunday Times as "one of the best science books of the year."
