This chapter introduces the neuroscientific study of consciousness, volition, and conscious volition, discussing the lack of consensus and other obstacles neuroscientists face in identifying their neural bases. It describes how theoretical frameworks and philosophical work come into play toward this end. The chapter also discusses the importance of collaboration between neuroscientists and philosophers, zooming out and reflecting on differences between progress in philosophy and progress in neuroscience.
