A Spectrum of Opinions
This book presents a spectrum of opinions, models and theories as well as some experimental evidence to elucidate the various approaches within this on-going scientific debate. It will enable readers to decide for themselves which hypotheses and which directions of study appear most promising. The underlying assumption made by the editor of this volume is that consciousness should be understood using the combined intellectual potential of modern physics and the life sciences.

Contributions have been gathered from a number of scientists representing a spectrum of disciplines taking a biophysics-based approach to consciousness. In their attempts to identify and understand the roots of consciousness, the authors variously exploit experimental, theoretical and even philosophical approaches.

The volume begins with a general overview written jointly by Nancy Woolf and Jack Tuszynski. This includes a detailed synopsis of the further contributions, together with a

Can Quantum Theory Help Us Understand Consciousness?

By Jack Tuszynski in Scientific Background on May 21st, 2007 / No Comments

Consciousness, once a topic alluded to only by philosophers and, occasionally, theologians, has - in the past 20 years or so - migrated into the domain of science and rational analysis. But this does not mean to say that conscious experience is now understood in the way that we understand other natural phenomena that were once attributed to otherworldly causes - earthquakes or solar eclipses, for example.

The volume begins with a general overview written jointly by Nancy Woolf and Jack Tuszynski. This includes a detailed synopsis of the further contributions, together with a few words about the â˜allegiancesâ™ of their authors in the ongoing debate.
