Stephen E. Braude, Ph.D.
Immortal Remains: The Evidence for Life After DeathReviewers' Comments
Immortal Remains:
The Evidence for Life After Death

Rowman & Littlefield, 2003

Publishers Rowman & Littlefield

(Paper)


"This book is impressive. The author is a respected philosopher and parapsychologist whose works on psi, multiple personality, and other subjects are exemplars of scholarship . . . Superlatives are in order. This is the best book on survival that I have read." —Frank B. Dilley, University of Delaware

"Braude's treatment is psychologically much more sophisticated than most previous attempts to evaluate the literature. The book is worth close study. There are also touches of humor that lighten the seriousness of the topic. Professor Braude has produced a prodigious and fascinating work for which we can only offer our thanks." —The Australian Journal of Parapsychology

"By far the best treatment of the philosophical complexities involved in the empirical case for survival of death. Stephen's treatment of the super-psi hypothesis (as an alternative to survival of death) is highly insightful and challenging. His various comments on the theoretical presuppositions involved in arguments for survival is incredibly lucid. The chapters on mediumship are the best philosophical treatment of mediumship since C.D. Broad's Lectures on Psychical Research."Prof. Michael Sudduth, San Francisco State University

"Braude takes great care to clearly define concepts and summarize the case material in sufficient detail for the educated lay reader to follow his argument. This book does much more than present a case for personal postmodern survival. Immortal Remains not only contains Braude's personal perspective, but also highlights the state of the debate thus far. Even one with just a slight interest in survival research would do well to get acquainted with Braude and the philosophers with whom he puts himself into conversation throughout the book. Finally, he tackles these difficult issues with clear language and suitable wit, making Immortal Remains both a thought-provoking and entertaining read." —Journal of Scientific Exploration

"Stephen Braude is unique among those evaluating the evidence for an after-life in that he manages to combine a sympathetic consideration of favorable cases with an honest, penetrating philosophical critique of them." —Richard M. Gale, University of Pittsburgh

"Lucid and comprehensive, Stephen Braude's Immortal Remains is certainly one of the best assessments ever written--perhaps, the best ever written--of the evidence for human survival of bodily death." —Raymond Martin, Union College

"As one would expect . . . Dr. Braude gives us a solid work of critical scholarship. He employs considerable philosophical and psychological sophistication." —The Christian Parapsychologist

"[Braude's] research is thorough. He brings credibility to parapsychology . . . I teach courses in death and dying and we cover a wide range of topics, including many that are raised in this book. I recommend this book. It's the best I've seen in parapsychology." —Metapsychology

"Imaginative, detailed, and well written." —Journal of the Society for Psychical Research

"I welcome this book as an important contribution to the debate on whether or not we survive physical death. Scholarly, carefully argued and elegantly written, I hope it achieves the success it so clearly deserves." —Scientific & Medical Network

Crimes of Reason by Stephen Braude CRIMES OF REASON
ON MIND, NATURE, AND THE PARANORMAL

Rowman & Littlefield Publishers
(July 16, 2014)

Acquire this book as:
1 - Hardcover
2 - Paperback
3 -Kindle

"Stephen Braude is a professional philosopher and well established author both of books and articles who is particularly noted for two things.

One is for his work in certain Borderland areas in which topics within philosophy, psychology, parapsychology and psychiatry meet, overlap and interact (or should interact). The other is for the clarity and pithiness of expression with which he handles abstruse and difficult issues.

He has a gift for analogies, often amusing ones, which cut through layers of nonsense (often pretentious nonsense loaded with jargon) and expose the nub of a question. If Braude's views are correct – and they are certainly cogently argued – these topics are potentially of considerable and wide-ranging importance."

(Alan Gauld, University of Nottingham)

This book isn’t just good, it’s excellent. Stephen Braude is at the top of the intellectual food chain in the study of paranormal phenomena..."
—Fred Frohock, author of Lives of the Psychics: The Shared Worlds of Science and Mysticism

The Gold Leaf Lady is a read not to be missed. To initiates it offers valuable updates and insights. To those inconversant with the current state of parapsychological research, it may rank as the best introduction available.”
