Mindful Universe : Quantum Mechanics and the Participating Observer The classical mechanistic idea of nature that prevailed in science during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries was an essentially mindless conception the physically described aspects of nature were asserted to be completely determined by prior physically described aspects alone with our conscious experiences entering only passively During the twentieth century the classical concepts were found to be inadeuate In the new theory uantum mechanics our conscious experiences enter into the dynamics in specified ways not fixed by the physically described aspects alone Conseuences of this radical change in our understanding of the connection between mind and brain are described This second edition contains two new chapters investigating the role of uantum phenomena in the problem of free will and in the placebo effectAuthor of over three hundred research papers on the mathematical physical and philosophical foundations of uantum mechanics and a Springer book Mind matter and uantum mechanics Worked personally with W Heisenberg W Pauli and JA Wheeler on these issues Invited author of entries about uantum theories consciousness in several currently about to appear encyclopedias Invited plenary speaker at numerous international conferences For book cover Henry Stapp has spent his entire career working in frontier areas of theoretical physics After completing his thesis work under Nobel Laureates Emilio Segr and Owen Chamberlain he joined Wolfgang Pauli to tackle foundational issues After Pauli s early death he turned to von Neumann s ideas about the mathematical foundations of uantum theory The essay Mind Matter and uantum Mechanicsthat developed out of this work eventually evolved into Stapp s classic book bearing the same title His deep interest in the uantum measurement problem led him to pursue extensive work pertaining to the influence of our conscious thoughts on physical processes occurring in our brains The understandings achieved in this work have been described in many technical articles and now inaccessible prose in the present book
