InPresence host, Jeffrey Mishlove, PhD, is author of The Roots of Consciousness, Psi Development Systems, and The PK Man. Between 1986 and 2002 he hosted and co-produced the original Thinking Allowed public television series. He is the recipient of the only doctoral diploma in “parapsychology” ever awarded by an accredited university (University of California, Berkeley, 1980). For many years he served as president of the non-profit Intuition Network, an organization dedicated to creating a world in which all people were supported and encouraged in developing inner intuitive abilities.

Here he discusses William James’ famous essay, published in 1910, that argues eloquently for a new solution to end war based on redirecting the positive military virtues of honor, glory, self-sacrifice, and tests of manhood. Jeffrey also brings up James’ interest in Hinduism and contrasts James’ philosophy with the cosmic distance to the consequences of war argued in the classic Bhagavat Gita.
