For 12 years, I was editor of the IONS Review and Shift, the magazine published by the Institute of Noetic Sciences in California. During that time, I completed my doctoral studies in philosophy and religion at the California Institute of Integral Studies, and co-authored The Scientific Exploration of Consciousness with the late Willis Harman."

De Quincey is a professor of Philosophy and Consciousness Studies at John F. Kennedy University, Dean of Consciousness Studies and the Arthur M. Young Professor of Philosophy at the University of Philosophical Research, and adjunct faculty at the Holmes Institute, and at Schumacher College, Devon, England.

His writings on consciousness have appeared in a number of academic journals and popular magazines. [1]
