A highly accessible and well ordered book with seriously convincing arguments, with perspectives rarely considered. Any fluff you come across is well worth the overall message. A great combination of modern psychology, neuroscience, Darwinian evolution, evolutionary psychology and of course, Buddhism! Get mediating!

This mind-bending tour of metaphysics applies philosophy to the forefront of today's knowledge. Over the course of 24 fascinating lectures, Professor Johnson thinks through the big questions about humans and the universe: The relationship between the mind and the brain, how consciousness emerges from neurochemical processes, the existence of God, human free will, the possibility of time travel, and whether we live in a multiverse or even a computer simulation.
A little bit mind-blowing
