Reductionism revisited

In Stuart R. Hameroff, Alfred W. Kaszniak & A. C. Scott (eds.), Journal of Consciousness Studies. MIT Press. pp. 51-68 (1998)
Abstract
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.
