Stanley Krippner, PhD, professor of psychology at Saybrook University, is a Fellow in five APA divisions, and past-president of two divisions (30 and 32). Formerly, he was director of the Maimonides Medical Center Dream Research Laboratory, in Brooklyn NY. He is co-author of Dream Telepathy, Extraordinary Dreams and How to Work with Them, The Mythic Path, and Haunted by Combat: Understanding PTSD in War Veterans, and co-editor of Debating Psychic Experience: Human Potential or Human Illusion, Healing Tales, Healing Stories, Varieties of Anomalous Experience: Examining the Scientific Evidence, Advances in Parapsychological Research and many other books. He is a Fellow of the Society for the Scientific Study of Religion, and has published cross-cultural studies on spiritual content in dreams.

Here he reviews his half-century of experience as a parapsychologist, pointing out that the American Psychological Association has always been open to his symposium proposals and has published two editions of Varieties of Anomalous Experience. Parapsychology still has hurdles to overcome with regard to replication. However, the same problem exists in all other behavioral and social sciences. Over the decades, he has become more comfortable with the data supporting the hypothesis that human consciousness can survive the death of the physical body.
