Book Description

Oct. 1 1993
Throughout human history, thoughts, values and behaviors have been colored by language and the prevailing view of the universe. With the advent of Quantum Mechanics, relativity, non-Euclidean geometries, non-Aristotelian logic and General Semantics, the scientific view of the world has changed dramatically from just a few decades ago. Nonetheless, human thinking is still deeply rooted in the cosmology of the middle ages. Quantum Psychology is the book to change your way of perceiving yourself--and the universe--for the 21st Century. Some say its materialistic, others call it scientific and still others insist its mystical. It is all of these--and none.

5.0 out of 5 stars Do us All a Favor and Read This Book July 18 2004
Format:Paperback
Three important words: "read this book." Three much more important words: "Do the exercises." Some readers may have already encountered the main principles of this work, either in other books by RAW or by studying general-semantics; I still think it a valuable epitome of some very useful ideas. If nothing else, I think it would reduce the number of Internet arguments that start with "As you could plainly see if you had simply READ what I WROTE ..." which would certainly rank as an improvement in MY world.
I approach anything with "Quantum" in the title with a skeptical eye, as I feel the current fashion for explaining everything from ghosts to the impossibility of artificial intelligence by reference to quantum uncertainty, quantum coupling, etc., could use either a strong dose of real physics or just a good long rest. On the other hand, many people still live in the clockwork universe of Newton or even the commonsense world of Aristotle, years after the work of Einstein, Schroedinger, Heisenberg, Goedel, "etc.," revealed the cracks in the foundations of classical and naive physics and mathematics, so anything that raises awareness of these changes in the intellectual climate will have some good effects down the line.
I once referred to general-semantics as "21st Century Zen Epistemology," which might fit _Quantum Psychology_ as well. RAW has laid out a series of observations and a program of exercises that can, quite simply, make your mind work better, unless you are among the one in a scadzillion who has already completed the work.
Please don't fool yourself on this point! Read the book anyway.
Do the work. Do us all a favor, first of all yourself.

5.0 out of 5 stars one of his very best Nov. 1 2002
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I have serious disagreements with R. A. Wilson's whole approach, but I must give the devil his due. This is such a clear and concise presentation of his philosophical system and such an effortless display of understanding of all the most fundamental philosophical issues in the whole history of Western thought (the introduction should be required reading for every freshman humanities student) that only a writer of his education and skill level could possibly have pulled it off. In terms of subject matter it's the same as all his other books (minus his worst excesses), so don't go looking for anything groundbreaking, but if you're new to Wilson or haven't figured him out yet, by all means get this one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wilson Repeats Himself Again! Still Lots of Fun Oct. 29 2003
Format:Paperback
After reading a majority of Robert Anton Wilson's books, I have formed the opinion that he repeats the same points over and over again through-out his work. I find that he often writes about General Semantics, UFOs, quantum physics, reality tunnels, and weird science. I also think that he revisits these topics to make the same points he has made before.
I also think that the points he makes are well worth repeating, and further more I think that they are could be some of the most important ideas in the world today. Wilson askes us to reconsider everything we think that we know about reality, right down the our use of the word "is." As I read anyone of his books, I find myself time after time challenged to rethink how I view "reality."
I really enjoy reading RAW's work, and this book is not an exception for me. It has been about five years since I have read a RAW book, and I am glad I have waited. Instead of complaining about Wilson covering the same territory twice I am happy to get reaquainted with his views on life the universe and everything.

5.0 out of 5 stars the physics of mind can be fun! May 30 2003
Format:Paperback
Learning how to use your brain is never more fun than with the wonderfully zany, enlightening methods of RAW.
RAW is like the college professor you always wished you had: joyful, upbeat, cutting edge, the rock n' roll version of the intellectual.
Quantum Psychology is enlightening in the most fun ways!

5.0 out of 5 stars Core Reading Dec 19 2002
Format:Paperback
May be the best of Wilson's books for summing up his version of how the mind works. An excellent integration of diverse sciences, complete with many experiments you can do yourself. Also try Prometheus Rising, and Coincidance.

4.0 out of 5 stars Old bob exposes his knowledge July 24 2002
Format:Paperback
This is the follow up to "prometheus rising and I have to say a damn good book. The author alternates between explaining the absurdly obvious and inherently esoteric while splicing the text with great anecdotes and forceful humour. This makes easier reading for what would otherwise be a very challenging subject. RAW has his own inimitable stlye which fans of previous books will no doubt enjoy. The only reason I haven't given this book the full 5 stars is I think it falls just short of the mark of the standard set by "prometheus rising" and is presented in a very similar manner. RAW has again presented some great perception altering prose and continues to be a forefather of his field
