Critical Reflections on the Paranormal
Michael F. Stoeber, Hugo Anthony Meynell
SUNY Press, 1996 - Body, Mind & Spirit - 224 pages
Critical Reflections on the Paranormal discusses various aspects of paranormal phenomena such as telepathy, psychokinesis, trance-mediumship, near-death experiences, and past-life memories. It reflects on what is reasonable to believe about them, and why; and it suggests what changes they might demand in our worldview, if these phenomena are accepted as genuine.
The collection includes essays written by Susan Armstrong, Heather Botting, Stephen Braude, Don Evans, David Ray Griffin, James Horne, Terence Penelhum, and the editors.
