"Richard Barrett offers us an exciting new direction for measuring consciousness. He has proven that the insights these measures bring can significantly improve our individual, organisational and societal performance. The work of the Barrett Values Centre stands as a testament to what can be achieved by seriously applying ourselves to the measurement of conscious." Dr. Marc Gafni, Co-Founder and Director, Center for Integral Wisdom Dr. Zachary Stein, Academic Director, Center for Integral Wisdom
Richard Barrett is one of the most profound integrative thinkers of our day. Bringing together numerous strands of research and theory with his visionary perspective he succeeds in “building a theory of human well-being that unites psychology with spirituality and science". A brilliant synthesis of the psychology of the future. This book redefines the meaning of well-being for the 21st century.
My basic hypothesis is that evolution was never about species, it was always about consciousness. Therefore, the continuance of 3.8 billion years of evolution on Earth now rests on the shoulders of the evolution human consciousness. Unlike Neo-Darwinism and Intelligent Design, which are only concerned with life on Earth, the evolutionary intelligence theory explains the whole of evolution from the Big Bang to the present day. Richard Barrett takes on nothing less than the theory of evolution and adds immeasurably to our understanding. The elegant simplicity with which Richard guides us through his ideas is refreshing in this era of complication and complexity and indicates a rare clarity of thought. His analysis of current world events and prognosis for the future should be required reading for all politicians and policymakers. Ruth Steinholtz, AretéWork LLP

Does the brain create the mind, or is some external entity involved? In addressing this nullhard problemnull of consciousness, we face a central human challenge: what do we really know and how do we know it? Tentative answers in this book follow from a synthesis of profound ideas, borrowed from philosophy, religion, politics, economics, neuroscience, physics, mathematics, and cosmology, the knowledge structures supporting our meager grasps of reality. This search for new links in the web of human knowledge extends in many directions: the nullshadowsnull of our thought processes revealed by brain imagining, brains treated as complex adaptive systems that reveal fractal-like behavior in the brain's nested hierarchy, resonant interactions facilitating functional connections in brain tissue, probability and entropy as measures of human ignorance, fundamental limits on human knowledge, and the central role played by information in both brains and physical systems. In Brain, Mind, and the Structure of Reality, Paul Nunez discusses the possibility of deep connections between relativity, quantum mechanics, thermodynamics, and consciousness: all entities involved with fundamental information barriers. Dr Nunez elaborates on possible new links in this nested web of human knowledge that may tell us something new about the nature and origins of consciousness. In the end, does the brain create the mind? Or is the Mind already out there? You decide.
Several thousand years ago Indo-European culture diverged into two ways of thinking; one went West, the other East. Tracing their differences, Christopher Bollas examines how these mentalities are now converging once again, notably in the practice of psychoanalysis. Creating a freely associated comparison between western psychoanalysts and eastern philosophers, Bollas demonstrates how the Eastern use of poetry evolved as a collective way to house the individual self. On one hand he links this tradition to the psychoanalytic praxes of Winnicott and Khan, which he relates to Daoism in their privileging of solitude and non verbal forms of communicating. On the other, Bollas examines how Jung, Bion and Rosenfeld, assimilate the Confucian ethic that sees the individual and group mind as a collective, while Freudian psychoanalysis he argues has provided an unconscious meeting place of both viewpoints. Bollas’s intriguing book will be of interest to psychotherapists, psychoanalysts, Orientalists, and those concerned with cultural studies.
