Bernardo Kastrup, PhD, is a computer scientist, who has recently completed a second doctoral degree in philosophy. 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 https://www.bernardokastrup.com/.
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.
