Editorial Reviews

Dean Radin PhDCo-Editor-in-Chief
Brain Wars explains why the prevailing brain-mind paradigm is falling apart and why we are increasingly being forced to reconsider the nature of consciousness. The consequences of this paradigm shift are profound, and Mario Beauregard does a magnificent job in explaining why.”
Bruce Greyson
“Mario Beauregard shows convincingly that the materialistic philosophy of the 19th century is an impoverished framework incompatible with contemporary science, from physics to psychology. The concepts he develops in Brain Wars are required reading for scientific literacy in today’s world.”
B. Alan Wallace
“In this ground-breaking work, neuroscientist Mario Beauregard cites a range of scientific studies challenging many widely held materialistic assumptions about the relation between the mind and brain.”
Pim van Lommel
“Dr. Beauregard describes that our mind/consciousness has a fundamental and irreducible nature, and that it sometimes can be experienced independently from the body because it is not limited to our brain. Brain Wars clearly announces the end of physicalism, reductionism, materialism and objectivism in science.”

Larry Dossey
“The assumption that the brain makes consciousness, like the liver makes bile, and that human consciousness is confined to the brain and body, will not endure because it is unscientific, and cannot account for how consciousness manifests in the world. In this important book, Dr. Mario Beauregard shows why.”

    Are human beings truly nothing more than "computers made of

    Are human beings truly nothing more than "computers made of meat," which
    cease to exist when the power's turned off? 

    This book takes a look at some of the evidence that consciousness exists in
    addition to and outside of the brain, and shows that the mind can do seemingly
    impossible things. Why/how placebos work, what has been documented to
    happen during OOB (Out of Body) and NDE's (Near Death Experiences). How
    "remote viewing" is a thing and has been used by the US government.

    And what does quantum physics have to do with it all?

    While I can't begin to explain all the points this book touches upon, I came away
    from it with a renewed belief that the brain and body are important tools, but are
    no more "us" than our favorite jeans are "us." A mind-expanding read.
