The concept of the unconscious has staged a comeback. New research, employing brain scans and other techniques, has shown that the unconscious is not only real but indispensable. Hidden Minds traces our enduring fascination with the unconscious and our attempts to tame it through hypnosis, psychoanalysis, subliminal manipulation, lucid dreams, and even the principles of the "quantum mind." Drawing widely on scientific research, art, literature, and philosophy, Frank Tallis shows that an understanding of this "hidden mind" is essential to understanding our true selves.
