“This volume accomplishes the elegant and timely synthesis of phenomenology, transpersonal and humanistic-somatic psychologies as they apply to contemporary neuroscience. Both beginners and more advanced scholars will benefit greatly from studying the applications of neurophenomenology to psychology in this book.”

“A heady mix of articles that elucidates the 'hard problem' of mind/brain interrelations and travels some distance in closing the circle of psychology on neuroscience. It is true: William James over a century ago was 150 years ahead of his time.”

"Dr. Gordon's psychoneurointracrine model is eclectic and interdisciplinary. It reveals the mind-brain interface, the growth-oriented dimension of the person, and the myth-making dimension of human experience. My colleagues and I were aware of this process when we wrote about "personal myths" or existential life beliefs, stressing their roots in an individual's biochemistry. Her model has considerable explanatory value, providing a way to bridge the explanatory gap between the mind and the brain, how the mind develops not only meaning, but one's sense of well-being, and - ultimately - how the notion of "self" emerges from this complex system."

"Susan Gordon has produced a timely book with her new volume on Neurophenomenology. Neurophenomenology is a hot topic within philosophy and neuroscience, yet its assimilation within mainstream psychology is lagging. This book attempts to bridge the gap between philosophical neurophenomenology and such psychological domains as cognition, emotion, learning, pedagogy, meditation, and psychoneuroimmunology. The book also establishes the kinship of neurophenomenology with humanistic psychology, William James’ radical empiricism, and transpersonal psychology."
