Overview

Time, process, and consciousness are the common threads of 16 studies by American scholars of psychology, mathematics, physics, and psychiatry. Rather than trying to account for detailed data about the quantitative dynamics of mental processes and the brain, they explore questions pertaining to the fundamental nature of mind, drawing ideas from dynamical systems, process philosophy, and related areas of science. Among the issues they engage are the underlying logic of thought, the nature of states of consciousness, the interdependence of mind and physical reality, and the possibility of extrasensory perception.
