Consciousness and Fundamental Reality

New York, USA: Oup Usa (2017)

Authors
Philip Goff

Abstract
The first half of this book argues that physicalism cannot account for consciousness, and hence cannot be true. The second half explores and defends Russellian monism, a radical alternative to both physicalism and dualism. The view that emerges combines panpsychism with the view that the universe as a whole is fundamental.
