Project Description

CONSCIOUSNESS, DREAMS AND SELF: A Transdisciplinary Approach

John B Arden - Consciousness, Dreams, SelfWinner of the Outstanding Academic Book Award (1997-Choice, the American Library Association)

“In Consciousness, Dreams, and Self, Dr. J.B. Arden has produced a masterful synthesis of biological, philosophical, and psychophysiological perspectives on human consciousness. Arden has deliberately proposed a paradigm shift that would accommodate his views on consciousness as a contextual, fluid process—one that is especially well illustrated in his chapters on dreaming. Although consciousness was neglected by mainstream science for many decades, there is now a plethora of books on the topic. Arden’s contribution is unique, and his readers will find their ideas about consciousness both challenged and expanded.”
– Stanley Krippner, PhD, Professor of Psychology, Saybrook Institute

“An interesting overview of current knowledge and speculation in consciousness research.”
-Karl Pribram, MD, Professor, Radford University, Professor Emeritus, Stanford University

“In this bold extension of the biopsychosocial model of mind-body/body-mind using now necessary concepts of nonlinear dynamics, Dr. Arden impressively approaches an integration between the objective body of science and the phenomenological body of experienced meaning.”
-George Solomon, MD, Professor Emeritus of Psychiatry and Biobehavioral Sciences, University of California, Los Angeles
