Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Years ahead of its time in its proposed resolution to complex metaphysical issues that interest us today (i.e. consciousness). In charting a middle way between the behavioral and cognitive approaches that have dominated psychology in the previous century, E.B. Holt predicts the onset of embodied cognition, the failure of representationilism, the transmogrification of idealism in ever-new clothing among the intellectual elite (e.g., postmodernism, contextualism), among other highlights.

Consciousness is complex, and constitutes of simpler entities that are obviously non-conscious. The author`s distinction between reflective and non-reflective consciousness suggests a `soul` that is both real and `neutral', an emergent phenomenon from the complex interaction of entities that themselves are inseparable links between state and environment. Highly recommended.
