Anti Matters Vol 1, No 1:

“An open-access journal addressing issues in science and the humanities from nonmaterialistic perspectives”

From the inaugural Editorial:

‘So what is in this first issue of AntiMatters?

The first item (“What Buddhist Meditation has to Tell Psychology About the Mind”) is a plenary address to the American Psychological Association delivered on August 23 of 2002 (eight days late!) by Eleanor Rosch and published here for the first time. Rosch explains why Eastern traditions, particularly Buddhist thought and meditation, can reveal a quite new understanding of what the human mind and its knowing capacity actually are. She is critical of biological and psychological approaches to meditative and religious experiences since in taking our present versions of the body and the mind for granted they marginalize these experiences.’
