In this engaging and comprehensive book, the philosopher Brooke Noel Moore provides a unique synthesis of the philosophical and parapsychological aspects of belief in life after death. He explains the various theories of personal survival after physical death, discusses the mind-brain relationship, personal identity, the possibility of disembodied existence, reidentification of spirits, and alternative concepts of self. By exploring the theoretical philosophical approaches to life after death alongside a critical examination of the accumulated empirical evidence of 100 years of psychical research, Moore explains, critiques, and integrates both areas of study into a complete assessment of the possibilities beyond death.

Although skeptical of much of the evidence for survival, Moore retains a level-headed perspective throughout, prioritizing reasoning and rationality over any personal prior religious or philosophical commitments. Such balance and intellectual honesty are rare in contemporary parapsychology, and Moore’s book should be seen as a model of fairness and open-mindedness for both skeptics and believers alike. Moore’s assessments of mediumship, reincarnation, xenoglossy, deathbed visions, electronic voice phenomena, out-of-body experiences, and near-death experiences are essential reading for anyone seriously interested in the ultimate meanings of these extraordinary phenomena.

An Evolutionary Bifurcation: Transcendence or Transhumanism? by David Lorimer – In 2023, the world is a very different place compared with 2010, when I wrote the introduction you can read below, but looking at the contents of this volume, I can’t help feeling that the need for a new renaissance is more significant than ever at a time of rising divisions, intensifying polarities, intolerance of other viewpoints, increasing narrative control and censorship, and the relentless rise of technocracy as social engineering employing behavioural psychology techniques such as ‘nudging’ and fear mongering in order to shape our perception and behaviour.
