This book brings together ancient spiritual wisdom and modern science and philosophy to address age-old questions regarding our existence, free will and the nature of conscious awareness.

This book presents a rich, broad-ranging overview of contemporary research and scholarship into consciousness and the self. Included in its chapters are a number of bold ideas which stretch the bounds of long-established hypotheses in these areas, especially where issues of spirituality and mysticism impinge on psychological interpretations of consciousness. There is no doubt in my mind that the conundrum of consciousness requires us to integrate high-quality material from a range of disciplines which impinge on differing aspects of the subject. It is therefore to their credit that the editors have assembled a highly stimulating set of scholars whose expertise cover all the relevant areas. I strongly recommend the book to anyone with an interest in understanding the directions in which contemporary thinking about the nature of consciousness is headed.
