This book makes the proposal that the only possible solution to the 'mind-brain' problem is that each nerve cell is conscious separately and that we have no other 'global' consciousness. It explores the idea in an accessible way, while attempting to address fundamental issues of cell membrane biology and the nature of the observer.

Review:

"Dr. Edwards presents a fascinating, no-holds-barred discussion of how consciousness may arise in the brain. His unconventional idea that consciousness may be a property of single cells is thought-provoking and deserves very careful consideration." Stephen Goldberg, MD, Professor Emeritus, University of Miami School of Medicine, author, Consciousness: How The Mind Arises From The Brain. "Edwards challenges dominant ideas to the effect that awareness relates to the complexity of the brain or intercellular interaction. Most of all the book points to the need for conceptual innovation in this domain. It is also full of sparkling insights on language and what we might call the physics of thought, and may well help to open up a domain of research on the origin of the semantics of our subjective world in a wave-based as opposed to atomistic universe." Professor Wolfram Hinzen, University of Durham. "Highly provocative and original, this book willcertainly stimulate debate." Scientific and Medical Network Review. "The playfulness of Jonathan C.W. Edwards's title continues throughout his personal essay (the 'hers' in his title refers to his wife and daughter). The essence of Edwards's essay ... may be considered one brain's attempt to render a notoriously complex and confounding issue approachable by seasoning scholarly discourse with wit and personal anecdotes." Harold L. Miller, Jr. PsycCritiques.

Book Description Imprint Academic. Paperback. Condition: New. 222 pages. Dimensions: 8.1in. x 5.3in. x 0.7in.This book proposes that the only possible solution to the mind-brain problem is that each nerve cell is conscious separately and that we have no other global consciousness. We are colonies of sentient micro-organisms, each, unaware of the sentience of the others, led to believe that it is me. Despite being counterintuitive and disquieting this idea may resolve several paradoxes hidden in the closets of brain research laboratories. The idea is explored in an accessible, matter of fact, and sometime irreverent manner, but nevertheless attempt to address fundamental issues of cell membrane biology and the nature of the observer, which may run deeper than the quantumclassical divide. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Paperback. Seller Inventory # 9781845400729
