Cosmic Consciousness: A Study in the Evolution of the Human Mind
by Richard Maurice Bucke
Publisher: Innes & Sons 1905
Number of pages: 334
This book was one of the first to consider religious illumination from a psychological perspective. The basic point is that the human race is slowly and sporadically, albeit with increasing speed, advancing in consciousness to a higher state that will eventually lift the species above the fear, ignorance and brutality that have plagued mankind throughout history.

by Aaron Sloman - The Harvester Press
Some parts of the book are dated whereas others are still relevant both to the scientific study of mind and to philosophical questions about the aims of science, the nature of theories and explanations, and to questions about the nature of mind.
by Bertrand Russell - George Allen And Unwin Limited.
One of Russell's most important and interesting books which reconciles the materialistic tendency of psychology with the anti-materialistic tendency of physics. The author unfolds his ideas on consciousness, instinct and habit, desire and feeling.

The problem of truth is a problem of philosophy. It is not a problem of merely historical interest, but a present problem -- a living controversy, the issue of which is undecided. Its present interest centre round the doctrine of pragmatism.
