Abstract

Originally published in Contemporary Psychology: APA Review of Books, 1979, Vol 24(7), 582–584. Reviews the book, The Stream of Consciousness: Scientific Investigations Into the Flow of Human Experience by Kenneth S. Pope and Jerome L. Singer (Eds.) (see record 1980-51398-000). This collection of papers is quite representative of the current state of affairs, both in its strengths and weaknesses. It contains, some of the most thoughtful chapters or consciousness and the stream of consciousness that I have read, along with a few that might better have been left out. It is well worth reading for anyone interested in the issues, and is especially strong in empirical work on relatively unconstrained thought, fantasy, and daydreaming. This book shows promise that we are developing a psychology that will neither neglect nor suppress the vital question of consciousness. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
