Consciousness is the hot topic in scientific circles—its precise nature holding huge implications for the future of science as a viable discipline. And with so many recent advances in brain studies, questions of mind and consciousness have become critically important for both theorists and hard scientists.

Are we “nothing but a pack of neurons” that will in due course reveal their secrets in the laboratory? Or do our conscious mind and self-awareness stem from some dimension beyond material investigation? How, too, are we to account for “parapsychological” phenomena in which consciousness seems to defy space and time boundaries?

These latest contributions to the debate—selected from the annual “Beyond the Brain” conferences—show that it is time for radical rethinking of our theories and methods in investigating phenomena of the human mind.
