The Mind Matters

Show Summary Details

Preview

This book presents a case against today' s orthodox mechanistic view of the brain and mind, and in favour of the view that ‘the mind matters’. Although written from a philosophical viewpoint, the book has important implications for the sciences concerned with the brain and mind problems. At the same time, it is largely non-technical, and thus accessible to the non-specialist reader.

Keywords: brain; mind; sciences; consciousness; choice; quantum world

Book.  496 pages.  Illustrated.

Subjects: Philosophy of Mind
