  1. A. C. Scott (2004). Reductionism Revisited. Journal of Consciousness Studies 11 (2):51-68.
    From the perspective of nonlinear science, it is argued that one may accept physicalism and reject substance dualism without being forced into reductionism. This permits a property dualism under which biological and mental phenomena may emerge from intricate positive feedback networks, involving many levels of both the biological and cognitive hierarchies.

  2. A. C. Scott (2003). On Quantum Theories of the Mind. In Naoyuki Osaka (ed.), Journal of Consciousness Studies. John Benjamins. 5-6.
    In response to recent suggestions that the phenomena of consciousness may be related to those described by quantum theory, it is argued that distinctive features of brain activity are more typical of nonlinear classical dynamics than of quantum dynamics, which is a linear theory. Thus natural scientists should turn to hierarchies of nonlinear classical systems rather than quantum theory for explanations of the brain's mysterious behaviour.
