    "[Genetically Modified Organisms: A Scientific-Political Dialogue on a Meaningless Meme is] presents the debate associated with introducing GMOs as a traditional debate between science and progress against dogma. After reading it, I hope that science will win for the sake of all of us."

The Disembodied Mind: An Exploration of Consciousness in the Physical Universe

Since classical times we have seen considerable progress in our understanding of the physical world through the disciplines of science. However, when it comes to the mind and its most palpable property, consciousness, we have difficulty attempting any kind of meaningful discussion. Can material things be conscious, or is the mind entirely separate from physics? If we insist on the latter, how does the mind relate to the physical world?

Relying more on evidence rooted in the empirical sciences than on standard philosophical arguments, this book disseminates a persuasive and self-consistent model implying an objective mind completely unconnected with anything physical. Moreover it means that the mind has no effect on the physical domain, but, by free volition, is able to navigate its way through a myriad of configurations that constitute the world we experience.

Dr James C. Austin’s current and long-term academic interests include general relativity, mainly in chronology protection, and quantum theory, particularly its interpretations. His formal scientific training began as a mature student reading Mathematics and Electronic Engineering at the University of Keele, UK, where he works as a Teaching Fellow. As part of his degree, he also took a subsidiary module in the Philosophy of Science. He also holds a PhD in Diagnostic Ultrasonics. He has published around two dozen articles on time series analysis in chaotic systems, non-destructive testing and cationic polymerisation.
