The Astonishing Brain and Holistic Consciousness: Neuroscience and Vedanta Perspectives
Authors: Vinod D. Deshmukh (University of Florida, Jacksonville, Florida, USA) Book Description:
Abstract: Holistic consciousness is an all-inclusive awareness of the currently situated body-mind-being of an individual person or a living organism. Holism, a theory that the universe and especially living nature is correctly seen in terms of interactive wholes, as all living organisms, that are more than the mere sum of their parts. It is related to and concerned with wholes or with complete systems, rather than with the analysis and treatment of the parts. It holds, that a system or an organism, is a coherent unified whole, that cannot be fully explained in terms of individual parts or characteristics. The system or an organism may have properties, in addition to those of its parts, as a completely new entity or phenomenon. This book provides an understanding of holistic consciousness with a focus on neuroscience and Vedanta perspectives. (Imprint: Nova)
