Endophysics, time, quantum, and the subjective proceedings of the ZIF Interdisciplinary Research Workshop, 17-22 January 2005, Bielefeld, Germany by ZIF Interdisciplinary Research Workshop ( )
7 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 826 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Endophysics, Time, Quantum and the Subjective" is the first systematic cross- and trans-disciplinary appraisal of the endophysical paradigm and its possible role in our understanding of Nature. Focusing on three of the most pressing issues of contemporary science, the interpretation of quantum theory, the nature of time, and the problem of consciousness, it provides the reader with some forefront research, concepts and ideas in these areas, such as incessant Big Bang, geometrizing of "mental space-times," and a contextual view of quantum mechanics and/or a view of the Universe as a self-evolving quantum automaton. Although primarily aimed at academics, this engaging volume can be read by anyone interested in modern physics, philosophy, psychology and cognitive sciences
Quo vadis quantum mechanics? by Avshalom C Elitzur ( )
18 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in English and held by 798 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book represents the combined efforts of sixteen of today's most eminent theoretical physicists to lay out future directions for quantum physics. The authors include Yakir Aharonov, Anton Zeilinger; the Nobel laureates Anthony Leggett and Geradus 't Hooft; Basil Hiley, Lee Smolin and Henry Stapp. Following a foreword by Roger Penrose, the individual chapters address questions such as quantum non-locality, the measurement problem, quantum insights into relativity, cosmology and thermodynamics, and the possible bearing of quantum phenomena on biology and consciousness."--Jacket
Mind and its place in the world : non-reductionist approaches to the ontology of consciousness by Alexander Batthyany ( Book )
5 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 99 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
What is mind? What is its relationship to the physical world? Is consciousness a causative agent in the physical world? With much progress being made in the neurosciences, many have thought that these questions could be answered by reducing them to questions about physical systems such as the brain. But this approach has foundered on the core problem of consciousness: Why is it that some brain processes are accompanied by conscious awareness? This anthology points out new sources and unexamined paths of consciousness research. By presenting a wide spectrum of non-reductive theories, the volume
Mind, matter, and quantum mechanics by Henry P Stapp ( )
3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Scientists other than quantum physicists often fail to comprehend the enormity of the conceptual change wrought by quantum theory in our basic conception of the nature of matter," writes Henry Stapp. Stapp is a leading quantum physicist who has given particularly careful thought to the implications of the theory that lies at the heart of modern physics. In this book, which contains several of his key papers as well as new material, he focuses on the problem of consciousness and explains how quantum mechanics allows causally effective conscious thought to be combined in a natural way with the physical brain made of neurons and atoms. The book is divided into four sections. The first consists of an extended introduction. Key foundational and somewhat more technical papers are included in the second part, together with a clear exposition of the "orthodox" interpretation of quantum mechanics. The third part addresses, in a non-technical fashion, the implications of the theory for some of the most profound questions that mankind has contemplated: How does the world come to be just what it is and not something else? How should humans view themselves in a quantum universe? What will be the impact on society of the revised scientific image of the nature of man? The final part contains a mathematical appendix for the specialist and a glossary of important terms and ideas for the interested layman. This new edition has been updated and extended to address recent debates about consciousness

Irreducibly conscious : selected papers on consciousness ( Book )
3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In the commotion surrounding the expanding field of consciousness studies, a few voices are drowning out the rest. In the opinion of the authors collected here, the field of consciousness studies has been overly influenced by efforts to reduce consciousness to a physical phenomenon, manifested by either the brain or the behaviour of the organism. Yet numerous scientists and philosophers have been arguing that consciousness is more than a physical process. In addition to the physical aspect of consciousness, the phenomenal or experiential aspect of consciousness needs further examination. This book consists of twenty articles that do just that. It stands out from the vast literature on consciousness by uniting in one volume non-reductionist essays on consciousness by a cast of distinguished and international researchers in fields as diverse as physics, philosophy, and cognitive science. In addition to showing the limits of the reductionist approach, the essays in this book shed new light on the study of consciousness by putting forward new sources and hitherto unexamined paths of research
