Summary:
Written in an extraordinarily lucid style, Elemental Mind is a brilliant and audacious attempt to arrive at a solution to the "mind/body problem." Until now the debate has been dominated by two major conjectures. One holds that the mind is the result of certain complex biological interactions; the other asserts that the mind is the "software" that controls the brain's computer-like "hardware."

Abstract:

Written in an extraordinarily lucid style, Elemental Mind is a brilliant and audacious attempt to arrive at a solution to the "mind/body problem." Until now the debate has been dominated by two major conjectures. One holds that the mind is the result of certain complex biological interactions; the other asserts that the mind is the "software" that controls the brain's computer-like "hardware." This book presents a third hypothesis- one that boldly casts aside traditional explanations about inner mental states. And it does so by drawing on sources as diverse as Vonnegut and Heisenberg, not to mention imagined encounters with an entrancing, highly intelligent robot named Claire.
