 Consciousness [Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy]
The abstract noun “consciousness” is not often used in the contemporary literature, though it should be noted that it is originally derived from the Latin con (with) and scire (to know).
The literature in response to zombie, and related “conceivability,” arguments is enormous (see, for example, Hill 1997, Hill and McLaughlin 1999, Papineau 1998, 2002, Balog 1999, Block and Stalnaker 1999, Loar 1999, Yablo 1999, Perry 2001, Botterell 2001).
Moreover, anyone familiar with the literature knows that there are significant terminological difficulties in the use of various crucial terms which sometimes inhibits genuine progress (but see Byrne 2004 for some helpful clarification).

 Early American Literature
The theme of Early American Literature (Eng 340) is the diverse searches for identity (artistic, cultural, ethnic, political, philosophical, racial, religious, and sexual) in American literature from the early seventeenth century through the national period in the late eighteenth century.
To reinforce and build upon the broad foundation that students have received in the American Literature I (Eng 210), the students examine select texts, thematically grouped, by significant authors.
Aiming at a thorough understanding of the issues of identity raised by these authors, the predominant mode of instruction is class discussion (including oral presentations, group work, and in-class writing) accompanied by the directed lecture.

 Teaching Early American Writings: Colonial-Spanish   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-01)
What both the ALA session and the EARAM-L discussion indicate is that teachers of early American literature need some way to get beyond the anthology, even the best of anthologies, in order to fully incorporate colonial Spanish works about North America into their courses.
The second point to keep in mind when approaching colonial Spanish North American literature -- and all literatures from outside the canonical British American literary tradition -- is that by exploring these materials, both teachers and students come to a better understanding of American literature in general.
American literature should no longer be taught as mainly a branch of British literature with influences from other cultures occurring primarily during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.
