By Mario Beauregard and Denyse O'Leary
In this book, neuroscientist Beauregard and journalist O'Leary mount a sweeping critique of a trend in the pop science media to explain away spiritual experiences as a brain artifact, pathology or evolutionary quirk. Beauregard and O'Leary also offer compelling evidence that these experiences have a nonmaterial origin.
"A very important book, clearly explaining non-materialist neuroscience in simple terms appropriate for the lay reader."
- Jeffrey M. Schwartz, MD, Research Psychiatrist, UCLA
"The Spiritual Brain is a wonderful and important book...a necessary read for both the scientist and the religious person."
- Andrew Newberg, M.D. Associate Professor of Radiology and Director of the Center for Spirituality and the Mind at the University of Pennsylvania
"A refreshing antidote to the arguments offered by some scientists who insist that their minds, and yours, are meaningless illusions."
- Dean Radin, PhD, Senior Scientist, Institute of Noetic Sciences
