Product Details

Praise

“Nelson (Neurology/Univ. of Kentucky) has spent decades exploring what underlies spiritual experiences, so there is more to this book than physiological probing. In particular, the author is sensitive to the intensity of a transcendent moment, how it ‘deeply moves us or transports us and connects us in one way or another with something larger than ourselves.’ As a neurologist, however, he seeks an explanation based on well-established brain mechanisms. Nelson is humble and balanced, wary of our perception of consciousness and infectiously fascinated by how the brain shapes it.”
Kirkus

“This book is a bold, provocative and highly readable account of the author’s journey into the world of religious experience and its possible biological basis.”
-V.S. Ramachandran, author of Phantoms in the Brain and A Brief History of Human Consciousness
