Description

From Library Journal
The 24 essays and book excerpts in this volume provide a comprehensive, interdisciplinary study of near-death experience (NDE), including cases and interpretations. Documentation of NDE goes back to the time of Plato and continues to stir public interest on talk shows as people connect by sharing their stories of "coming back from the edge of death." What has happened? Why is it not always a pleasant experience for all people? Why are there the same basic bird's-eye scenarios? Answers come from writers such as Raymond Moody and Betty Eadie, who focus on the spiritual nature of NDE. Carl Jung's psychology of the inner self, based on his NDE, is among the essays' highlights. Additional writings, such as the essay by Karl Jansen, focus on the role of chemicals the brain produces in times of crisis. Because the topic is popular, many libraries will already have the complete books by the authors included in this collection, recommending this for only the most comprehensive collections.?L.

"...a good overview of the subject...[This is] a valuable resource for courses on death and dying and on NDEs." --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.


Synopsis
Near-death experiences (NDEs) are a mystifying and challenging state of consciousness. The incredible experiences reported by survivors of NDEs, such as out-of-body travel and soul-transforming peace and cosmic light, are stimulating interdisciplinary research in several fields, from the medical to the mystical. This work is a comprehensive collection of NDE cases and interpretations. Psychological researchers discuss cognitive models and Jungian theories of meaningful archetypal phenomena such as enlightenment and healing transformation. From a biological perspective, other contributors describe how brains near death may produce soothing endorphins, optical illusions and convincing hallucinations. Philosophers present empirical analyses and images in archetypal theories, and discuss the topic in the symbolic language of comparative phenomenological theories. Christian, Jewish and Mormon responses to NDEs outline the religious perspective.
