Editorial Reviews

From the reviews:"This is an excellent addition to Springer's (equally excellent) Frontiers Collection. . I can highly recommend it to philosophers (of mind), philosophers of various sciences, physicists, (especially those working in foundation of physics), and anyone interested in the contemporary debate on consciousness. It would also provide a good way to become acquainted with the more difficult of Bohn's later ideas. The book assumes no prior knowledge of quantum mechanics."
