About this title:

Synopsis:

The author examines the diminishing place of the spirit in philosophical thought from Descartes to the present day, and demonstrates that the ever more pervasive influence of scientific materialism seriously compromises our ability to form an adequate idea of the conscious mind.

From the Publisher: Barrett's newest study explores philosophy's most fundamental question: Does the human soul exist? Tracing the relationship of philosophy to the scientific and spiritual worlds, this book illuminates the ever-widening gap between theory and life and explains why the soul seems so unimportant to today's technocratic intellectuals.
