William X. Adams authored Mind, Body, World to open the reader’s mind to new ways of thinking concerning the relationship between those three subjects. He begins by discussing the difference between the “mind” and the “brain.” Once that basic concept is established, William develops and explores the relationship between the mind and its environs. How does the mind relate to the body and/or the world? This philosophical discussion challenges old ways of thinking and opens up myriads of possibilities. This book will challenge your mind and the way you have looked at life. Philosophical concepts can be tricky or even impossible to understand. Ideas of the body, the mind, and the world surrounding us can be confusing and difficult to define. William does a good job bringing us the varied possibilities of what the “mind” really is.

William X. Adams is a prolific writer who has added Mind, Body, World to his list of publications. He has a scientific mind, and as with most scientific minds, his mind is always thinking. Scientists tend to think on two levels; the physical and the mental. The physical has to do with the things that are real. The mental tries to explain what the physical is and why it exists. The mind is mental, while the brain is physical. How do the mental and the biological mesh? William states his theory of Generative Realism is only for those who can think with an open mind. As a psychologist, William has worked a lot with the actions of the brain. He shares his discoveries in this book. You may disagree with William’s conclusions, but your brain will be challenged.
