Unfolding the Big Picture

Update 18.10.: the book is now available from Booky. Get yours now!

During the summer the Department of Philosophy in the University of Helsinki published a collection of articles called Unfolding the Big Picture. Essays in Honour of Paavo Pylkkänen. Together with Petteri Limnell, I had the pleaasure of editing this collection that celebrates Paavo’s work and the inspiration he has provided to colleagues and students. He has contributed remarkable insights to philosophy of quantum mechanics and philosophy of mind already during four decades. The essays in the collection deal with the core issues of Paavo’s work: the fundamental questions of the nature of consciousness, the nature of matter, and their relationship.

The list of contributors is impressive, and the essays well worth a look. For your own copy, contact the Department of Philosophy.
