(Book) Irreducible Mind: Toward a Psychology for the 21st Century, Edward Kelly
"Current mainstream opinion in psychology, neuroscience, and philosophy of mind holds that all aspects of human mind and consciousness are generated by physical processes occurring in brains. Views of this sort have dominated recent scholarly publication. The present volume, however, demonstrates_empirically_that this reductive materialism is not only incomplete but false."
"Thoroughly scientific, systematically reasoned and courageous... as exciting and enjoyable as it is provocative and profound!" (David J. Hufford )
"Irreducible Mind is an enormous and daring enterprise. Its scholarship is impressive... and made me think long and hard about many issues." (Etzel Cardeña Psyccritiques )
"a must-read for anyone working in consciousness studies, psychology and the history of science." (Jonathan Edelman )
"a monumental work...Only a very resistant observer will remain unpersuaded that a proportion, as least, of all this carefully evaluated data presents a significant challenge to conventional views" (Marshall, Paul Journal Of Consciousness Studies )
