Book Description

Opens a dialogue between process philosophy and contemporary consciousness studies.

Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

This collection opens a dialogue between process philosophy and contemporary consciousness studies. Approaching consciousness from diverse disciplinary perspectives--philosophy, psychology, neuroscience, neuropathology, psychotherapy, biology, animal ethology, and physics--the contributors offer empirical and philosophical support for a model of consciousness inspired by the process philosophy of Alfred North Whitehead (1861-1947). Whitehead's model is developed in ways he could not have anticipated to show how it can advance current debates beyond well-known sticking points. This has trenchant consequences for epistemology and suggests fresh and promising new perspectives on such topics as the mind-body problem, the neurobiology of consciousness, animal consciousness, the evolution of consciousness, panpsychism, the unity of consciousness, epiphenomenalism, free will, and causation.

About the Author

Michel Weber is Director of the Center for Philosophical Practice "Chromatiques whiteheadiennes," Brussels, and author of Whitehead's Pancreativism: The Basics. Anderson Weekes is an independent scholar and an educational consultant in New York.

More About the Author

Dr. Michel Weber is the Director of the Centre for Philosophical Practice Chromatiques whiteheadiennes (Brussels, Belgium). The Centre specializes in three complementary axes (research, publication and counselling), each reflecting in its own order the guiding principles of the philosophical act (creativity, efficacy, and vision). His current research program mainly deals with political philosophy and the philosophy of psychiatry. Dr. Weber is the author of seven monographs (e.g., Whitehead's Pancreativism: The Basics, 2006) and the (co-)editor of twenty-six books (e.g., with Will Desmond, Handbook of Whiteheadian Process Thought, 2008).
