Consciousness In The Brain?

Somerset Maugham.jpg

One of the most important of all debates is whether or not consciousness is simply a phenomenon – or perhaps even an illusion – created by the brain:

“The highest activities of consciousness have their origins in physical occurrences of the brain just as the loveliest melodies are not too sublime to be expressed by notes.”

–W. Somerset Maugham

(English Novelist and Playwright, 1874-1965)

For another approach, and one that is much closer to my own view, you might be interested to look at my review of one of the most important books published in recent years:

“Irreducible Mind: Toward a Psychology for the 21st Century” (Edward Kelly, Emily Williams Kelly)
