The Role of Consciousness in the Physical World

Jahn, Robert G. (Ed.).

 This book is based on a symposium held at the 1979 National Meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in Houston, sponsored by AAAS sections B (Physics) and L (History and Philosophy of Science). The purpose of the symposium was to discuss the manifestations and ramifications of consciousness in various fields such as physics, psychology, parapsychology, engineering, cosmology, information science, and technology policy. The symposium "attempts to define critical experiments and to propose models that explicitly acknowledge the role of consciousness in physical reality" (p. v). Contents include: "The Extension of the Area of Science," by Eugene P. Wigner; "Psychophysical Interaction," by Charles Honorton; "Experimental Psi Research: Implication for Physics," by Harold Puthoff, Russell Targ, and Edwin C. May; "Not Consciousness but the Distinction Between the Probe and the Probed as Central to the Elemental Quantum Act of Observation," by John Archibald Wheeler; and "Broader Implications of Recent Findings in Psychological and Psychic Research," by Willis W. Harman.
