A modern priestess of Isis by Vsevolod Sergeevich Solovʹev( Book )

6 editions published between 1895 and 1976 in English and held by 117 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book by the Russian novelist Vsevolod Sergeyevich Solovyov (1849-1903), translated and abridged by Walter Leaf (1852-1927) and published in 1895, reflects on the life of Madame Helena Blavatsky (1831-1891), co-founder of the theosophy movement in the United States. Originally published over eight months in literary magazine Russy Vyestnik ('Russian Messenger'), the book considers the controversy that engulfed Blavatsky in her final years over displays of her 'phenomena'. Solovyov was living in Paris in 1884 and researching spiritualist literature when he met Blavatsky (whose work was known in Russia), but he became disillusioned with both her and her movement. Leaf, a classical scholar and fellow of Trinity College, Cambridge, undertook the translation for the Council of the Society for Psychical Research, which had investigated Blavatsky's work. This account now provides a window on to the life of one of Europe's most controversial nineteenth-century spiritual leaders

Apparitions by G. N. M Tyrrell( Book )

6 editions published between 1942 and 1953 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Apparitions is most influential in categorizing ghosts. These four categories include experiments, crisis, post-mortem and ghosts. Tyrrell's classification of phantoms is an interesting and thought provoking one, his system is been continued in its use today, demonstrating that he was ahead of his time. Tyrrell develops the idea that the apparition may be a way for the unconscious part of the mind to bring to consciousness information that has been paranormally acquired#x97;in crisis cases, for example. He introduces an evocative metaphor of a mental 'stage-carpenter', behind the scenes in the unconscious part of the mind, and constructing the quasi-perceptual experience that eventually appears on the stage of consciousness, so that it embodies paranormal information in a symbolic way. Tyrell first introduced the term out-of-body-experience in this book. The Paranormal, the new ebook series from F & W Media International Ltd, resurrecting rare titles, classic publications and out-of-print texts, as well as new ebook titles on the supernatural#x97;other-worldly books for the digital age. The series includes a range of paranormal subjects from angels, fairies and UFOs to near-death experiences, vampires, ghosts and witchcraft
Mediumship and survival : a century of investigations by Alan Gauld( Book )

2 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this survey, Gauld draws on a century of evidence from a wide variety of sources : mediumship, reincarnation, obsession, possession, hauntings and apparitions - all seem to indicate survival. Can any part of the phenomena be interpreted as objective? And what about the arguments against survival - the psychological, parapsychological, and physiological explanations of paranormal events? Does our knowledge of how the brain works strengthen or weaken the case for survival?--Book jacket
