InPresence 39Politics & Consciousness

jeffrey mishlove


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 points out that in over 30 years of television and video production, he has generally avoided both politics and current events. However, given the necessities of our time, he may move more in this direction. He takes issue with Karl Popper’s argument that those who believe in tolerance should be intolerant of intolerance. He discusses Hegelian dialectic. He indicates that in political discussions, facts should take precedence over both logic and emotions.
