It also outlines the current consensus on the question in science and philosophy. Part II presents the main arguments against the mechanistic view of the brain-mind, which is at the heart of the current consensus. Part III considers quantum physics, its basic mathematics, its interpretation, and some of its implications for the mind-matter question. Part IV gives suggestions for the resolution of the mind-matter question.
