In this book, Hodgson presents a clear and compelling case against today's orthodox mechanistic view of the brain-mind, and in favor of the view that "the mind matters." In the course of the argument he ranges over such topics as consciousness, informal reasoning, computers, evolution, and quantum indeterminancy and non-locality. Although written from a philosophical viewpoint, the book has important implications for the sciences concerned with the brain-mind problem. At the same time, it is largely non-technical, and thus accessible to the non-specialist reader.

Review:


"Magisterial...It is balanced, extraordinarily thorough and scrupulously fair-minded; and it is written in clear, straightforward, accessible prose."--Times Literary Supplement


"A well argued and extremely important book."--New Scientist


"A worthwhile contribution to an important debate. It is well written, his philosophy is sound, and the description of quantum physics one of the best ever offered for the non-specialist."--The Independent


"His reconstructions and explanations are always concise and clear."--The Philosophical Review
