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 two competing theories of truth — that it is entirely a social construction and that there are eternal, immutable truths that we can discover. He also discusses a third approach, that of American pragmatism, in which the criterion for truth is whether a particular worldview has practical applications. He suggests that viewers examine their own beliefs about reality to determine whether or not they are working pragmatically.
