Es gibt für die Erklärung der Beziehung zwischen Bewusstsein und Gehirn verschiedene Ansätze, denen jeweils ein anderes Weltbild zugrunde liegt.
Der materialistische Ansatz, der in der Hirnforschung vorherrscht, besagt, dass das Gehirn unser Bewusstsein erzeuge. Das ist aber nur ein Modell, das gar nicht wissenschaftlich belegt werden konnte. Trotzdem ist daraus ein weit verbreiteter Mythos entstanden.
Dieses Buch entzaubert diesen Mythos, weil es zum Schluss kommt, dass der Materialismus falsch ist. Es bietet stattdessen einen neuen Erklärungsweg, der darlegt, wie das Bewusstsein die Materie erschafft.
Dass dieser neue Ansatz wissenschaftlich sein kann, zeigt dieses Buch durch seine streng reason und systematische Vorgehensweise, die trotzdem sehr leicht verständlich geschrieben ist.
