On the Other Side of Life: Exploring the Phenomenon of the Near-Death Experience is a probing examination of the NDE that will influence your attitude toward life and death - especially toward life. Supported by fascinating testimonies of people who have undergone near-death experiences, Ms. Elsaesser Valarino, an expert in the history of the NDE, presents this phenomenon in a systematic and analytic way, and discusses the rise of interest over the last 15 years. The author then sets up a forum with distinguished investigators and scholars in the fields of psychology, biology, physics, neurophysiology, theology, and philosophy. These six eminent personnel propose original and scientifically stimulating hypotheses on the phenomenon of the near-death experience: Professor Kenneth Ring, a worldwide renowned psychologist, presents a vast survey of the latest research in this filed; Professor Michel Lefeuvre, a philosopher, provides the first extensive philosophical analysis of the NDE phenomenon; Professors Louis-Marie Vincent, a biologist, Regis Dutheil, a theoretical physicist, and Paul Chauchard, a neurophysiologist, propose their own unique and highly interesting theories with respect to their own scientific fields of expertise; and Lord Bishop Jean Vernette, delegate of the French Episcopate and advisor to the Vatican, puts forth the views of the Catholic Church. The result is the first cross-disciplinary scientific research into the theoretical understanding of the NDE. On the Other Side of Life is an unbiased and thoughtful exchange of ideas and knowledge on the NDE. Ms. Elsaesser Valarino infuses this book with disarming intellectual honesty so that the reader is not unintentionallyprejudiced by the controversies surrounding the NDE phenomenon. The book will undoubtedly leave a lasting impression on anyone willing to open up to this fascinating phenomenon.
