This is a careful overview of published studies about NDEs. The book is built around presentations from the first two days of the 2006 IANDS conference. That event at The University of Texas M. D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston brought together NDE researchers from around the world to discuss the major findings of three decades of exploration into NDEs.

This is Dr. Jim Tucker’s most recent publication exploring American cases of young children who report specific memories of previous lives. In this book, which is a follow-up to his first book Life Before Life, Dr. Tucker has interviewed a number of extraordinary children with memories of past lives. Return to Life focuses mostly on American cases, presenting each family’s story and describing his investigation into the cases.  His goal is to determine what happened,what the child has said specifically, how the parents have reacted, whether the child’s statements match the life of a particular deceased person, and whether the child could have learned such information through normal means. Dr. Tucker has found cases that provide persuasive evidence that some children do, in fact, possess specific, personal memories matching the identities of people who have lived before.

This book reviews our forty years of research with children who report memories of previous lives for the general public.  Dr. Tucker, who currently directs this research, describes recent American cases as well as Dr. Stevenson’s classic cases in Asia.

Current mainstream scientific opinion holds that all aspects of human mind and consciousness are generated by physical processes occurring in the brain.  This book presents empirical evidence that this reductive materialism is not only incomplete but false. Topics addressed include phenomena of extreme psychophysical influence, memory, psychological automatisms and secondary personality, near-death experiences and allied phenomena, genius-level creativity, and mystical states of consciousness both spontaneous and drug-induced.  The authors show that these rogue phenomena are more readily accommodated by an alternative ‘transmission’ or ‘filter’ theory of mind/brain relations – a theory that ratifies the commonsense conception of human beings as causally effective conscious agents, and is also fully compatible with leading-edge physics and neuroscience.  The book should command the attention of all open-minded persons concerned with the still-unsolved mysteries of the mind.

This book is the product of an unusual fellowship of scientists and humanities scholars who dispute the view that reality is purely physical, and that human beings are nothing more than extremely complicated biological machines. In their previous publication, Irreducible Mind, the authors argued that the notion of physicalism cannot accommodate various well-evidenced empirical phenomena including paranormal or psi phenomena, postmortem survival, and mystical experiences. In this new theory oriented companion volume, the authors go further by attempting to understand how the world must be constituted in order that these so-called “rogue” phenomena can occur. Drawing on empirical science, metaphysical philosophy, and the mystical traditions, the authors work toward an improved “big picture” of the general character of reality, one which strongly overlaps territory traditionally occupied by the world’s institutional religions, and which attempts to reconcile science and spirituality by finding a middle path between the polarized fundamentalisms, religious and scientific, that have dominated recent public discourse.

A collection of Dr. Ian Stevenson’s writing, edited by Emily Williams Kelly PhD.  Ian Stevenson was a prominent and internationally-known psychiatrist, researcher, prolific author, and well-regarded figure in the field of psychical research.  This is the first book devoted to surveying the entirety of his work and the extraordinary scope and variety of his research. He studied universal questions that cut to the core of a person’s identity: What is consciousness? How did we become the unique individuals that we are? Do we survive in some form after death? Stevenson’s writings on the nature of science and the mind-body relationship, as well as his empirical research, demonstrate his strongly held belief that the methods of science can be applied successfully to such humanly vital questions. Featuring a selection of his papers and excerpts from his books, this collection presents the larger context of Stevenson’s work and illustrates the issues and questions that guided him throughout his career.
