What is consciousness? how do physical processes in the brain give rise to the self-aware mind and to feelings as profoundly varied as love or hate, aesthetic pleasure or spiritual yearning? consciousness is perhaps the most puzzling problem we humans face in trying to understand ourselves. In this thought-provoking book, scientists of the bhaktivedanta institute examine key underlying concepts of the modern life sciences in light of India’s age-old Vedic knowledge offering an enlightening view of consciousness through the lenses of science and philosophy.
