Publisher's Review 

For centuries, we have separated mind from matter. While physicists have pursued a theory of 'everything' with single-minded purpose, the matter of the mind, of human consciousness, has been conveniently sidestepped and ignored consigned to priests, philosophers and poets.

With the ambition of Stephen Hawking, Carlo Rovelli and Brian Cox, Putting Ourselves Back in the Equation sets out a bold new vision for theoretical physics, unrestricted by sleek equations and neat formulations. Combining cutting-edge neuroscience with the latest in quantum mechanics, acclaimed writer Musser offers a new interpretation of human consciousness. From bizarre cognitive phenomena, like lucid dreaming and self-taught synaesthesia, to the latest technological developments in AI, Musser asks- what can physics teach us about what it means to be human?
