'One of the most important works...of the twentieth century' The Times Shadows of the Mind is a profound exploration of what modern physics has to tell us about the human mind. A visionary description of what a new physics - one that is adequate to account for our extraordinary brain - might look like. It is also a bold speculation on the biological process that makes consciousness what it is. In this illuminating book Penrose provides powerful arguments to support his conclusion that there is something in the conscious activity of the brain that transcends computation - something that can't be explained by present-day science.

His book may be the first accessible report to a general readership about the site, if not the actual substance, of the holy grail of consciousness - the precise point where quantum activity interacts with classical physical activity in the brain...

How do we think? And what is it that makes us human? * The Times *
