What is phenomenal unity, and to what extent is consciousness phenomenally unified? No easy answers to these questions can be provided, because first the questions have to be formulated more perspicuously (which the first part of this book has attempted to do). This chapter presents, as succinctly as possible, the main results of this monograph. This involves explaining what the problem of phenomenal unity is, what it is not, how it can be solved, and which solutions have been explored and developed here. Finally, some important topics and problems that have not been investigated in detail are highlighted (e.g., mental action and cognitive phenomenology), thereby offering suggestions for future research.

Keywords:   Phenomenal unity, Consciousness, Mental action, Cognitive Phenomenology
