9781581152739: The Medium, the Mystic, and the Physicist: Toward a General Theory of the Paranormal

First published in 1974, this groundbreaking volume relates field theory of altered states of consciousness and compares the surprisingly similar views of mediums, mystics, and physicists.



When renowned psychologist Lawrence LeShan first explored clairvoyance and precognition it shook his belief in everyday reality. As a result, it led him to postulate other states of consciousness, which he calls “Clairvoyant Reality” and “Transpsychic Reality.” Although LeShan was trained in the traditional scientific method, he discovered that these altered realities—including the knowledge of future events, the ability to heal from great distances, and other paranormal phenomena—operated according to their own laws.



Filled with mesmerizing case examples, quotations, and observations from LeShan’s own personal experience, The Medium, the Mystic, and the Physicist includes LeShan’s essay, “Human Survival on Biological Death,” where he brings a fresh perspective to the theory of the afterlife. A classic guide for the study of parapsychology, readers will be intrigued by this collection of unique ideas.




• A classic in the field, often thought of as the author’s best work

• Author is renowned as a psychologist and a leader in the modern study of mind-body interaction

Book Description Allworth Press,U.S., United States, 2003. Paperback. Book Condition: New. New edition. 204 x 138 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Part of the groundswell in the exploration of consciousness in the 1960s and 1970s, this work relates field theory to altered states of consciousness and compares the close similarities in the world views of mediums, mystics and physicists. Psychologist and author Lawrence LeShan brought scientific method to bear in his study of facts that do not fit , such as clairvoyance and precognition. This exploration shook his belief in everyday reality and led him to postulate other states of consciousness that he called Clairvoyant Reality and Transpsychic Reality . These other realities operated on their own laws, which allowed not only clairvoyance (as documented by LeShan s work with the famous medium Eleanor Garret) but also knowledge of future events and the ability to heal even at great distances. Included as an appendix is LeShan s essay on Human Survival on Biological Death , in which he seeks to give the issues surrounding life after death a new context and a fresh perspective. This volume should be of interest to the many people today who seek to understand the full human potential in a world where everyday reality merely offers a starting place from which to journey.
