"This volume provides readers from many disciplines with the foundation and knowledge to date on the very comprehensive and complex study of consciousness." --Janet L. Etzi, PsycCRITIQUES
"...the breath of coverage is impressive....a useful resource....In sum, the book displays how thoroughly our dualistically oriented culture's scientific investigation of human behavior is held in the grip of ancient traditional constructs that are imposed on observed events..." --Noel W. Smith, State University of New York at Plattsburg, The Psychological Record
This handbook brings together leading scholars from around the world who address the topic of consciousness from a wide variety of perspectives from philosophical to anthropological to neuroscientific. An authoritative desk reference which will also be suitable as an advanced textbook.
