He is author of Rationalist Spirituality, Why Materialism is Baloney, Dreamed Up Reality, Meaning in Absurdity, Brief Peeks Beyond, More Than Allegory, The Idea of the World, and Decoding Schopenhauer’s Metaphysics. He has published several papers on Scientific American’s website arguing for metaphysical idealism. His website is

Here he explains that the many tests performed with regard to Bell’s Theorem in physics have now clearly demonstrated that what we conventionally consider the objective world does not exist independent of our own observations. This is a serious problem for metaphysical materialism. However, it is easily reconciled by the metaphysics of the nineteenth century philosopher, Arthur Schopenhauer.

New Thinking Allowed host, Jeffrey Mishlove, PhD, is author of The Roots of Consciousness, Psi Development Systems, and The PK Man. Between 1986 and 2002 he hosted and co-produced the original Thinking Allowed public television series.
