Book Description Select Books Inc, United States, 2016. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. What is consciousness? Conventional thinking tells us it is the images, sensations, thoughts, and feelings produced by the brain. When the neurons in the brain stop firing, consciousness ceases to be. But does it? In this profound book, three world-renowned thinkers look behind the veil of our commonly held assumptions about human consciousness and reality. They examine the true nature of consciousness in three revelatory, engrossing essays. Ervin Laszlo makes a compelling case that consciousness is a phenomenon that transcends our physical beings. Jean Houston examines consciousness and its place in what she calls the quantum field of the cosmos. Larry Dossey offers a trenchant, erudite takedown of the physicalist view of the mind. Together they change the way we see ourselves and our universe. With a Foreword by Stanley Krippner, Alan Watts Professor of Psychology, Saybrook University. Seller Inventory # AAC9781590793473
