Can someone with relevant expertise speak to the “Quantum Approaches to Consciousness” article? How would you describe the scientific and/or philosophical merit among the work it cites? How would you describe the article in its capacity as an encyclopaedia reference article as per SEP guidelines?
It seems laden with pronouncements that would be controversial in quantum foundations; and yet gives no adequate context to convey to non-experts how controversial some of the claims may be.Report
