Part I of this book summarizes some views basic to the general approach. It elaborates on mental events, the distinctions between them and physical events; and trace possible views on the relationship between the two. It also outlines the current consensus on the question in science and philosophy. Part II presents the main arguments against the mechanistic view of the brain-mind, which is at the heart of the current consensus. Part III considers quantum physics, its basic mathematics, its interpretation, and some of its implications for the mind-matter question. Part IV gives suggestions for the resolution of the mind-matter question.
