Quo vadis quantum mechanics? by Avshalom C Elitzur( Book )

21 editions published between 2005 and 2010 in English and held by 290 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 )

7 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 85 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
Endophysics, time, quantum, and the subjective : proceedings of the ZIF Interdisciplinary Research Workshop, 17-22 January 2005, Bielefeld, Germany by ZIF Interdisciplinary Research Workshop( Book )

7 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 41 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
Irreducibly conscious : selected papers on consciousness( Book )

4 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 23 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
Mind, matter, and quantum mechanics by Avshalom C Elitzur( )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 19 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 third edition has been significantly expanded with two new chapters covering the author's most recent work

Mind, matter, and quantum mechanics by Henry P Stapp( Book )

2 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Nature appears to be composed of two completely different kinds of things: rocklike things and idealike things. The first is epitomized by an enduring rock, the second by a fleeting thought. A rock can be experienced by many of us together, while a thought seems to belong to one of us alone. Thoughts and rocks are intertwined in the unfolding of nature, as Michelangelo's David so eloquently attests. Yet is it possible to under stand rationally how two completely different kinds of things can interact with each other? Logic says no, and history confirms that verdict. To form a rational comprehension of the interplay between the matterlike and mind like parts of nature these two components ought to be understood as aspects of some single primal stuff. But what is the nature of a primal stuff that can have mind and matter as two of its aspects? An answer to this age-old question has now been forced upon us. Physi cists, probing ever deeper into the nature of matter, found that they were forced to bring into their theory the human observers and their thoughts. Moreover, the mathematical structure of the theory combines in a marvelous way the features of nature that go with the concepts of mind and matter. Although it is possible, in the face of this linkage, to try to maintain the tra ditionallogical nonrelatedness of these two aspects of nature, that endeavor leads to great puzzles and mysteries
