Can We Talk Seriously About Life After Death?

May 5 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Free – £5

Can We Talk Seriously About Life After Death?

This talk offers a consideration of the quality of the evidence for Survival that has accumulated since Raymond Moody’s Life After Life of 1975. Have we now got to the point where we can take the topic seriously? Are there philosophical approaches that might help us see more clearly what can be said here? What of the objections of mainstream science and medicine? Can we bring the different parts of modern thinking together?


Is the event accessible?

This event will take place between the ground and first floor of the centre. There is a flight of stairs and no elevator/ramp.
