"A Book That Will Endure For Years To Come"
--2016 Chicago Seminary Co-op Bookstore Notable Book Award
"We are taken step by step in a stunning tour of many powerful yet still disputed ideas...that bring age-old controversies into relation with findings in modern physics and psychology."
--Jason W. Brown, Clinical Professor of Psychology, New York University
"Bricklin's coverage is ...vast, including eastern as well as western thinking....with persistence one may encounter in it some of the deepest problems in philosophical psychology."
--John Poynton, President of the Society for Psychical Research
"Despite all the interest in James the scholar and James the man, there remains an absence of highly readable books that bring some of the most colorful aspects of James' own thought, along with his somewhat mercurial personal character, to the modern reader. Bricklin's book does remarkable service in this vein, collecting many aspects of James' thought around the general theme of free will, a question that James struggled with his whole life, and which penetrated many dimensions of his thought."
--Allan Combs, Director of the Center for Consciousness Studies at The California Institute of Integral Studies, and author of Consciousness Explained Better
"Jonathan Bricklin has constructed a definitive anthology that conveys completeness and unity in the presentation of William James's nondual expression. This work is driven by intellectual argument and...elevated by elements of charm and poetry which arise out of the anthology's design and the writings. Most importantly, this work is founded in Bricklin's understanding of what nonduality is....Sciousness is a superb anthology, the best possible book imaginable for the discovery of the nondual William James."
--Jerry Katz, author of One: Essential Writings on Nonduality and creator of Nonduality.com
"Bricklin’s work--Sciousness—should also be widely read for its nondual offering from a Western thinker that runs counter to many assumptions about Western philosophy. I hope that many follow its suggestion and increase the number of studies exploring Buddhism and pragmatism together. Hopefully Bricklin has opened the floodgates."
