Psychical Research And Survival

James H. Hyslop

Psychical Research and Survival by James H. Hyslop is a comprehensive exploration of the field of psychical research and its implications for the possibility of survival after death. Hyslop, a prominent figure in the early 20th century psychical research movement, presents a detailed analysis of the evidence for paranormal phenomena, including telepathy, clairvoyance, precognition, and mediumship. He also examines the historical and philosophical context of psychical research, tracing its roots back to ancient times and exploring its relationship to spiritualism and other religious traditions.The book is divided into two parts. The first part provides an overview of psychical research and its methods, including experiments with mediums, investigations of haunted houses, and studies of spontaneous psychic experiences. Hyslop presents a wealth of case studies and experimental data to support his arguments, and he also addresses common objections to psychical research, such as the possibility of fraud or self-deception.The second part of the book focuses on the question of survival after death. Hyslop argues that the evidence for survival is strong, based on the consistency and coherence of the messages received through mediums and other psychic phenomena. He also explores the implications of survival for our understanding of consciousness, morality, and the nature of reality itself.Overall, Psychical Research and Survival is a thought-provoking and well-researched exploration of a fascinating topic. Hyslop's careful analysis and clear writing make this book accessible to both scholars and general readers interested in the possibility of life after death.This scarce antiquarian book is a facsimile reprint of the old original and may contain some imperfections such as library marks and notations.
