Meditation and Modern Psychology Synopsis

Meditation and Modern Psychology examines meditation from two perspectives: first, from the perspective of religions and philosophies such as Zen, Yoga and from that of the Sufis and Christian mystics; and then from the modern psychologist's point of view -- what is happening neurophysiologically during and after meditation?By looking at meditation from both points of view, Ornstein produces a modern scientific synthesis - one sympathetic to the practice of meditation - enabling the reader to appreciate and understand meditation as a tool which can lead to a different mode of perception. Robert Ornstein, Ph.D., has written more than twenty books on the brain, mind, and consciousness since the publication of the first edition of this book in 1971. This work emphasizes our urgent need and ability to develop perceptions beyond our human inheritance."e;I wrote this essay in 1970, when meditation was a curiosity, known only to a few tie-dyed people and, of course, the Beatles. There were a spasms of "e;Transcendental Meditaiton"e; burgeoning, a few obscure Zen centers, odd Yogas, and more. That's where it was, 38 years ago, and this book now looks like a good basic introduction to the high-tech research that followed."e; --Robert Ornstein, from the Preface to the 2008 edition
