Dimensions of the Paranormal

This course critically examines the religious and cultural significance of paranormal phenomena (such as near-death experience, telepathy, clairvoyance, UFO contact and abduction). By studying first-hand accounts, films, academic studies and selected new paranormal religious movements, students critically assess both the nature of the evidence and the different ways of accounting for it: mythic-religious, scientific, philosophic and psychoanalytic.
