"Current mainstream opinion in psychology, neuroscience, and philosophy of mind holds that all aspects of human mind and consciousness are generated by physical processes occurring in brains. Views of this sort have dominated recent scholarly publication. The present volume, however, demonstrates_empirically_that this reductive materialism is not only incomplete but false."
"Thoroughly scientific, systematically reasoned and courageous... as exciting and enjoyable as it is provocative and profound!" (David J. Hufford )
"Irreducible Mind is an enormous and daring enterprise. Its scholarship is impressive... and made me think long and hard about many issues." (Etzel Cardeña Psyccritiques )
"a must-read for anyone working in consciousness studies, psychology and the history of science." (Jonathan Edelman )
"a monumental work...Only a very resistant observer will remain unpersuaded that a proportion, as least, of all this carefully evaluated data presents a significant challenge to conventional views" (Marshall, Paul Journal Of Consciousness Studies )

An Interview with Dr. Eben Alexander III, author of "Proof Of Heaven: A Neurosurgeon's Journey Into The Afterlife"
"Proof Of Heaven is Dr. Eben Alexander III's #1 New York Times Bestselling book about his near-death experience. A Harvard and Duke associated academic neurosurgeon, Dr. Eben Alexander's brain was suddenly attacked by a rare illness. In fact, it was the part of the brain that essentially makes us human, thereby making his near-death experience much more compelling to scientists and skeptics because his brain was incapable of imagination or hallucination. For seven days he lay in a coma while journeying into the afterlife. Guided by a spiritual being yet having no memory of his physical (human) existence, Eben learned about life after death, our purpose for being here, the power of prayer, insights about why evil is allowed to exist in our world, and so much more. I'm honored to share this in-depth interview with one of the most likable and eloquent scientists of our time." ~ Bob Olson, Afterlife TV

Want to be inquisitive? This is an exploration into thought. Thoughts play themselves out as a drama. They each have images with their own attitude, manner and style. Your mind is trying to remind you of what you most need to understand.

The science delusion is the belief that science already understands the nature of reality, in principle. The fundamental questions are answered, leaving only the details to be filled in. The impressive achievements of science seemed to support this confident attitude. But recent research has revealed unexpected problems at the heart of physics, cosmology, biology, medicine and psychology. Dr Rupert Sheldrake shows how the sciences are being constricted by assumptions that have hardened into dogmas.
