Combining physics, philosophy and psychology, this book offers a revolutionary theory of the origins and nature of consciousness in terms of the new physics, pointing the way towards a new vision of the human self and its relationships, hence a new "quantum psychology" and a new "quantum morality".

'The Quantum Self' demonstrates how developments in modern subatomic physics demand a radical reappraisal of our conventional model of personality – indeed of our very idea of ourselves.
Guiding us through the strange and contradictory world of quantum mechanics, Danah Zohar argues that a more participative view of our relationship with the universe is essential if we are to discover our true nature. In place of the alienation and fragmentation imposed by traditional mechanistic science, we are offered a view of reality which effectively constitutes a new quantum psychology.
"Zohar's theory is brilliantly topical, answering the environmentalist's prayers for a holistic approach to nature and an escape from the spirit/matter dualism that has dominated western thinking from Plato to the modern Christian church."
"Zohar takes Fritjof Capra's classic 'The Tao of Physics' several steps further in this provocative use of quantum theory… A stimulating work, thoughtfully conceived and unusually thorough."
"If you are looking for a travel guide to understanding society as it has been, or could be in the next century and beyond, Zohar's contribution will be worth the effort."
