Cadenza for Fractured Consciousness: The Bibliography

This is the list of sources for my forthcoming article “Cadenza for Fractured Consciousness.” Please note that while I may have drawn on these sources in the writing of the article, that doesn’t mean that I agree with the claims of every source cited here – only that they contributed to my current understanding of what FND is, as well as how observers of FND have historically understood (and misunderstood) it over time.
