Dr. Paavo Pylkkänen’s eclectic approach combines new physics-based insights with those of analytical philosophy, phenomenology, cognitive science and neuroscience. He proposes a view in which the mechanistic framework of classical physics and neuroscience is complemented by a more holistic approach. Pylkkänen is particularly known for his work on mind-body-studies, building on David Bohm's interpretation of quantum mechanics.
