Consciousness: Clinical and Beyond by Professor, P. N. Tandon brings into focus clinical, neuro-biological, and philosophical studies on consciousness. I felicitate the learned scholar for his valuable presentation on consciousness which is a burning topic among a variety of experts: neuro-scientists micro-biologists, computer experts, philosophers etc. I do hope that his analysis will be welcomed by scholars and interested readers.

Foreword:

The Indian Institute of Advanced Study is wedded to the noble task of research on fundamental themes of life relevant to humanity. With this objective in view the Institute organizes intensive research by its resident fellows, lectures and talks by eminent visiting scholars and visiting professors as well as by seminars, conferences, workshops at Shimla and outside through its collaborative institutes and centres. The Institute has a distinguished record of publication of books, monographs, proceedings of seminars, symposiums, etc. It publishers two journals-Summerhill: IIAS Review and Studies in Humanities and Social Sciences. These publications go a long way in achieving the aims and ideals of the Institute.

The Institute has launched a programme entitled "Dissemination of Knowledge" under which it publishes Occasional Papers on significant themes of knowledge relevant to society, nation and humanity. The Institute has undertaken the responsibility for publishing a critical research journal in Hindi entitled Chetna also with this end in view.

The paper entitled Consciousness: Clinical and Beyond by Professor, P. N. Tandon brings into focus clinical, neuro-biological, and philosophical studies on consciousness. I felicitate the learned scholar for his valuable presentation on consciousness which is a burning topic among a variety of experts: neuro-scientists micro-biologists, computer experts, philosophers etc. I do hope that his analysis will be welcomed by scholars and interested readers.
