Consider anything by: Dan Dennett, Hilary Putnam, Jerry Fodor, Ned
Block, Stephen Stitch, Carl Pribram, and certain writing by Freud. You
might also look into the classics including James. I also recommend a
recent book by neurologist AR Damasio: Descartes' Error: Emotion,
Reason, and Human Brain. Physiologists also have something to offer, but
it may be more than you want to wade through. Good luck!
