Abstract:

Can human personality survive death, to return in antoher body? Here, in a newly revised edition, is a classic work on an intriguing phenomenon: children who claim to remember previous lives. Following an overview of reincarnation beliefs and evidence, author Ian Stevenson discusses representative children and the stories they tell. He examins the research methods, analyzes the cases (including how they are influenced by culture), and considers the implications of reincarnation for some unsolved problems in psychology and medicine. Covering forty years of experience, including new replication studies and investigations, this is a work that opens the reader's eyes and mind to ever more fascinating possibilities.
