This book explores the concept of consciousness when defined in the terms mind, spirit, soul and awareness. It consists of the edited proceedings of a colloquium held in Cordoba, at which experts in physics, neuro- and psycho-physiology, analytical psychology, philosophy and religious knowledge discussed aspects of their work related to this main theme. The following areas are covered: quantum mechanics and the role of consciousness, neurophysiology and states of consciousness, the manifestation of the psyche in consciousness, the odyssey of consciousness, and science and consciousness. The discussions which follow give a multi-disciplinary perspective on the questions involved.
Of interest to psychologists, psychiatrists, philosophers, physicists, neurophysiologists, and theologians.

@qu:Science and Conciousness is the recently published English translation of the proceedings of an interdisciplinary conference on the place of the study of consciousness in science, which was held in Cordoba, Spain, in 1979 under the auspices of France-Culture and Radio France...Clearly the Cordoba conference on science and consciousness was a landmark event. @source:Journal of the American Society for Psychical Research @qu:A collection of special importance for those interested in the role of consciousness in quantum mechanics since it includes papers by Brian Josephton, David Bohm, Costa de Beaureguarde, Fritjof Capra, Richard Mattuck and Franco Selleri, among others. @source:Zetetic Scholar
