Some underestimate the evidence, not realizing how impressive the most convincing cases are. Others overestimate, rejecting alternative explanations too readily. In fact, several non-survivalist explanations (hidden or latent linguistic or artistic talents, extreme memory & psychic abilities) are as interesting as the survival hypothesis & may be more plausible. Immortal Remains looks at some of the puzzling cases & considers how to tell evidence for an afterlife from evidence for exotic things done by the living.

Author Braude, whos done much research in parapsychology & dissociation, explores previously ignored issues about dissociation, creativity, linguistic skills, & the nature & limits of human abilities. He concludes weve some reason for believing in life after death.Survival & Personal IdentitySurvival & Anomalous KnowledgeThe Super-Psi HypothesisWhat Else Is Wrong with the Literature on SurvivalDrop-In CommunicatorsOutline of the IssuesThe Cagliostro CaseRunkis Leg: The CaseRunkis Leg: Theoretical Considerations & Nagging ConcernsTrance MediumshipOutline of Mrs Pipers MediumshipExamples of Mrs Pipers MediumshipMrs Leonards MediumshipMediumship & Super-ESPSurvival & the Causal NexusThe Cross-CorrespondencesThe Case of Sharada: Psychopathology & XenoglossyOutline of the CaseObjections to Stevensons ReportAkolkars ReportSuper-Psi & Knowledge-HowXenoglossy & DissociationThe Case of Patience WorthPearl Currans BackgroundThe History, Style & Personality of Patience WorthWriting SamplesThe Theoretical ChallengeNon-Survivalist ConjecturesLatency & Creativity: The Case of Helene SmithOther Cases of Mediumistic CreativitySurvivalist ConjecturesReincarnation & PossessionThe Case of Bishen ChandA Recent Early-Bird CaseThe Antonia CaseThe Sumitra/Shiva CaseThe Thompson-Gifford CaseLingering SpiritsHaunting: PreliminariesHaunting: CommentsTransplant CasesTransplant Cases: CommentsOut-of-Body ExperiencesWhy Externalism?Distinctness & IndependenceApparitions & Reciprocal OBEsNear-Death ExperiencesAn Appeal to SystematicityIdeal Cases
