What is included with this book?
Materialistic thinking suggests that perceptions of life after death are a creation of the brain. Armed with evidence from scientific studies, Chris Carter shows that consciousness does not depend on the brain, and that near-death experiences may truly provide a glimpse of an awaiting afterlife.
Chris Carter received his undergraduate and master’s degrees from the University of Oxford. The author of Parapsychology and the Skeptics, he currently lives in China.
