"Professor Amit Goswami presents here a highly rational, objective, and persuasive counter argument to the old materialistic assumption about mind and matter being irrelevantly related with mind a mere epiphenomenon of matter. Goswami is not shy here--he posits a whole new way of thinking that could change both our mindsets about God, mind, and matter and the very nature of what we mean by a physical world as different from a spiritual world. This is an important work to consider regardless of how you feel about the subject." --Fred Alan Wolf, Ph.D, author of Mind into Matter, The Yoga of Time Travel, and many other books

  • Author Amit Goswami

    Amit Goswami is a theoretical nuclear physicist and member of The University of Oregon Institute for Theoretical Physics since 1968. Goswami received his PhD in physics from Calcutta University in 1964. He became best known as one of the interviewed scientists featured in the 2004 film What the Bleep Do We Know!? He is also featured in the upcoming documentary, Dalai Lama Renaissance (narrated by Harrison Ford). Visit him at amitgoswami.org.

By denying evolution altogether, says quantum physicist Amit Goswami, intelligent design believers fly in the face of scientific data. But the idea of intelligent design does contain substance that neo-Darwinists cannot ignore. Goswami posits that consciousness, not matter, is the primary force in the universe. Biology must come to terms with feeling, meaning, and the purposefulness of life, as well as with the idea of a designer. What’s more, reconciling the question of life’s purposefulness and the existence of the designer with neo-Darwinism also answers many other difficult questions. The result is a paradigm shift for biology and the vision of a coherent whole that Goswami calls “science within consciousness.” In this timely, important book, the author offers clear arguments supported by the findings of quantum physics that represent a major step in resolving controversies between science and religion.
