TitleStates of consciousness : experimental insights into meditation, waking, sleep and dreams
Author(s)Dean Cvetkovic (ed.);Irena Cosic (ed.)
PublicationHeidelberg, Springer, 2011.
Description1 online resource (x, 280 p.) : ill. (some col.)
Abstract Note"In this accessible overview of current knowledge, an expert team of editors and authors describe experimental approaches to consciousness. These approaches are shedding light on some of the hitherto unknown aspects of the distinct states of human consciousness, including the waking state, different states of sleep and dreaming, meditation and more. The book presents the latest research studies by the contributing authors, whose specialities span neuroscience, neurology, biomedical engineering, clinical psychology and psychophysiology, psychosocial medicine and anthropology. Overall this anthology provides the reader with a clear picture of how different states of consciousness can be defined, experimentally measured and analysed. A future byproduct of this knowledge may be anticipated in the development of systematic corrective treatments for many disorders and pathological problems of consciousness"--Provided by publisher

TitleAwakened ones: Phenomenology of Visionary Experiences
Author(s)Gananath Obeyesekeres
PublicationNew York, Columbia University Press, 2012.
Descriptionxx, 622p.
Abstract NoteWhile a rational consciousness grasps many truths, Gananath Obeyesekere believes an even richer knowledge is possible through a bold confrontation with the stuff of visions and dreams. Spanning both Buddhist and European forms of visionary experience, he fearlessly pursues the symbolic, nonrational depths of such phenomena, reawakening the intuitive, creative impulses that power greater understanding.
