Synopsis: The Inner Dimension examines the philosophical significance of a remarkable family of experiences central to Eastern philosophical and meditation traditions, and reported by creative geniuses in the West from Plato through Einstein. Empirical research on ordinary people practicing traditional Eastern meditation techniques now indicates that these otherwise rarely encountered experiences actually reflect widely accessible universal potentials of ordinary human awareness. The Inner Dimension responds to this research by exploring the significance of these experiences for a wide range of philosophical issues - self, knowledge, mind-and-matter, creativity, values, and human potential - as articulated by major Western philosophers such as Plato, Descartes, Hume, Kant, Mill, and Wittgenstein. Its analyses and approach throughout are straightforwardly empirical and non-metaphysical. Its implications, however, are revolutionary.

Review: «Fascinating, beautifully written, and makes a very strong case. A real contribution...Bravo¿» (John Immerwahr, Villanova University)
«Highly readable, great originality and force. I was taken by the book's breadth and depth of scholarship. Professor Shear's treatment of Plato is particularly insightful and effective; his analyses of ethical issues are often even brilliant. Incorporating philosophers' descriptions of experiences of inner awareness into the discussion of philosophical theory makes this study especially alive and stimulating.» (John H. Flodstrom, University of Louisville)
«The analysis of physics, mathematics, consciousness, and empirical knowledge is original and extremely clear...rigorous, and provocative.» (Kenneth Eppley, Stanford Linear Accelerator Center)
«... a work which makes a convincing case for the intelligibility, spirituality, and unity of reality. This useful and challenging book can be highly recommended for students of mysticism, perennialism, esotericism, and comparative philosophy.» (Tyson Anderson, Mystics Quarterly)
«The book offers insights on a broad range of issues, and does so with consistent originality and intelligence.» (Robert. K.C. Forman, Transpersonal Review)
