Science of Life After Death

Broadcast on March 20, 2023
With Alexander Moreira-Almeida, MD, PhD
Hosted by Helané Wahbeh, ND

Alexander Moreira-Almeida, MD, PhD, will discuss the best available scientific evidence regarding one of the most challenging and pervasive questions throughout ages and cultures — the survival of human consciousness after death. He will start with a contextual overview of belief in personal survival, and then will refute misguided historical and epistemological arguments against the notion of survival. He'll also present and discuss studies on mediumship, near-death and out-of-body experiences, and reincarnation.

In this session, you’ll discover:

  • The key misguided arguments and prejudices against the academic study of afterlife survival
  • What constitutes empirical evidence for survival after death
  • The belief in life after death in the contemporary world as well as in the history of religions and philosophy
