520 |a"This book argues that a person is essentially an immaterial subject of conscious states who, though intimately linked by causal ties to the body, is nevertheless distinct from it. The book also examines paranormal occurrences supporting the belief that some persons have survived--though only temporarily--bodily death. Reports of near-death experiences, apparitions, and reincarnation experiences are discussed"--Provided by publisher.
