Science and Spirit : Exploring the Limits of Consciousness

Description

Are you out of your body? At least part of you may be, if consciousness can extend beyond the brain in your skull. In "Science and Spirit," authors Charles F. Emmons and Penelope Emmons explore some intriguing questions: What evidence is there for consciousness apart from the body, and what evidence is there for survival of consciousness after bodily death? Through ethnographic interviews with scientists, observations at conferences, and visits to research institutes, they investigate the existence and meaning of ESP, out-of-body experiences, near-death experiences, reincarnation, spirit mediumship, lucid dreaming, and ghost experiences. In this study, they share a variety of scientific frames for looking at these questions and happenings, and they disclose their own paranormal experiences. "Science and Spirit" uses a unique blend of strong academic and scientific theory and methodology and applies it to the examination of paranormal topics.
