"We the humans pride ourselves to be the most intelligent species of all. Our vanity is in our uniqueness. Our vanity is in our unpredictability. Our vanity is in our rich, vivid and unique mental lives."
Naskar’s What is Mind? is a breathtaking investigative odyssey that attempts to resolve the fundamental distinction between Mind and Matter, with which the philosophers have struggled for millennia.
He elucidates in his peerless explanatory ways, how Mind and Matter are not separate after all. They are intertwined in every single aspect of human life.
