This is a highly philosophical essay on the relationship of brain and consciousness. The author divides his material into the following sections: (1) the materialistic approach, dealing with the physical world and, in particular, the nervous system; (2) the idealistic approach, which is entirely philosophical, and, finally, (3) the postulational psychophysical parallelism, the latter being somewhat similar to the approach of Wiener in cybernetics.
