Book Description

What are the long-term effects of near-death experiences? Why do some people see sounds and taste smells? What happens during an out-of-body experience? These extraordinary and unusual phenomena have often be en ignored or ridiculed by mainstream psychology.

In this fascinating volume, leading scholars explore these areas, as well as experiences of hallucinations, lucid dreams, alien abductions, mysticism, anomalous healings, psi-events and past-lives, in an effort to explain the totality of human experience.

In an accessible style, contributors review and discuss current research about unusual but important events, creating a mesmerizing account of activity at the boundaries of conventional psychology. The chapters examine current research and theories, methodological issues, related psychopathology, individual and cultural differences, aftereffects, and clinical implications of anomalous experiences.
