This idealist solution to the mind-body problem, which is compellingly integrated with quantum physics, affirms human free will and agency.
The mind-body problem is the ultimate intractable enigma. How can we - being complex physical systems - have multicoloured experiences, and make conscious choices? This book proposes that all fundamental constituents of the universe are agents, which perceive one another, and freely act according to their percepts. Contemporary science can be explained in entirely mentalistic terms. This is consistent with many interpretations of quantum mechanics, such as GRW and Roger Penrose’s OR theory.
A Note From the Publisher
Mind, Quantum, and Free Will is engagingly written, with an impressive breadth and depth of scholarship. I found it quite provocative in multiple respects, and believe that most readers with interests in these topics would be enriched by exploring it.
