Approaches to Consciousness (#Q434)
THE EVOLUTION OF CONSCIOUSNESS
Robert Ornstein

Consciousness is the ability of the mind to reflect upon its own experience. Robert Ornstein, Ph.D., is author of nineteen books, including The Psychology of Consciousness and The Evolution of Consciousness. He suggests that the mind is composed of many subroutines that he refers to as a "squadron of simpletons." Self-awareness requires orcherstrating these "simpletons" to work as a team.
THE NERVOUS SYSTEM AND THE SOUL
Oliver Sacks

Dramatic, musical and mathematical qualities of the soul are available even to the mentally retarded and those with other neurological deficits. Oliver Sacks, M.D., is author of Awakenings, A Leg to Stand On and The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat. He maintains that our our conventional awareness is limited compared to the talents of those with Tourette's syndrome and other disorders.
WORKING WITH COMAS
Arnold Mindell

Arnold Mindell, Ph.D., an innovative psychological theorist and therapist, is author of Coma: Key to Awakening. He discusses the unique methods he has developed for working with individuals in comatose states. Using the techniques of "process psychology" he is able to find channels into the minds of comatose individuals that allow him to establish communication.
WHEN NIETZSCHE WEPT
Irvin D. Yalom

Irvin D. Yalom, M.D., a professor of psychiatry at Stanford University, is author of Love's Executioner as well as a novel, When Nietzsche Wept. Yalom describes his novel as highlighting the existential issues of human consciousness which are the basis of his own therapeutic approach. The soul-searching, self-examination of the philosopher is contrasted with the methodical approach of a reknowned physician and pioneer psychotherapist.
