This book presents a systematic argument about how the evidence from parapsychology shows that it's sensible to be both scientific and spiritual in your orientation to life. Given the enormous number of people who are suffering uselessly because they think Science has proven that all spiritual stuff is nonsense and craziness, this revolutionary book offers a healing tonic. Instead of rhetorically arguing with those who would claim that paranormal phenomena and capacities simply cannot exist, Dr. Tart calmly lays out a wealth of oft-ignored evidence establishing the reality of telepathy, precognition, psychic healing, and other aspects of advance human capacity. The end result is not an argument against science, but rather a vision that affirms how much the practical union of scientific rigor and spiritual experience has to offer us all.
"This beautifully written book is not only a masterful survey of parapsychology and psychical research, but also a thoughtful analysis of scientific inquiry and how it can be used to explore and explain the spiritual aspects of human nature." -- Stanley Krippner, Ph.D., coeditor, Varieties of Anomalous Experience
