European Interest in Survival after Death Alvarado April 13th 2019

Dr Carlos S Alvarado presented “Survival of Death and the Development of Parapsychology” on Sunday April 7th, 2019.

This presentation was given in the Parapsychology Research and Education free online course (also known as ParaMOOC2019), this year focused on “Survival of Death and Parapsychology”.

Abstract: Discussions about survival of death in psychical research tend to be focused in developments from the Anglo-American context, such as the ideas and work of Frederic W.H. Myers, Oliver J. Lodge, James H. Hyslop, Richard Hodgson, and others. But there were also contributions coming from other countries, as seen in the work of Alexander Aksakov, Camille Flammarion, Gustave Geley, Emil Mattiesen, and others. In this presentation I focus on the work and ideas of Italian student of psychic phenomena Ernesto Bozzano (1862-1943).
