Human Personality and Its Survival of Bodily Death

3.97  ·  Rating details ·  70 ratings  ·  4 reviews
This work, first published in the 19th century, was the culmination of more than 20 years of research into the survival of consciousness after death. Declaring the soul able to survive the death of the body was extremely daring at a time when the scientific community's leaning toward materialism made it risky to even express the belief that man possesses a soul.

Spiritual and Personal

A very personal book that anyone can relate to in one way or another. Gets the reader in touch with his/her own mortality. The depth of the author’s thoughts has connected science with religion, which reflected his deep faith. The book could be a matter of controversy, yet the editor has clarified that from the start. A great read without a doubt. Highly recommended for sure!

Whether all this stuff is true or not -- and I think a lot of it probably is -- an immensely fascinating book.

In depth and convincing. A very good guide to this arena of soul survival. Interesting and encouraging enough that Rabindranath Tagore was himself impressed by this book.
