Description

Brain Mystery Light and Dark examines scientific models of how the brain becomes conscious and argues that the spiritual dimension of life is compatible with the main scientific theories. Keyes shows us that the belief in the unity of mind and brain does not necessarily undermine aesthetic, religious, and ethical beliefs.

Reviews

'A systematic and sophisticated attempt to produce a model of consciousness arguing that the spiritual dimension of life is compatible with scientific naturalism … an engaging and highly readable work.' - Scientific and Medical Network
