Présentation de l'éditeur

Most of us at the very least wonder about our own immortality and many people are convinced that there is something beyond death, beyond the blackness of the grave. In Western Judaeo-Christian culture we absorb from an early age the idea that virtue now has its own reward - later. We are taught that the universe is essentially moral and that there are absolute human values.

But increasingly, science presents us with a picture of a much more mechanical universe in which there is no absolute morality and man has no purpose and no personal responsibility except to his culture and his biology. We no longer live in an age when faith is sufficient; we demand data, and we are driven by data. And it is data - data that apparently throws some light on our current concepts of Heaven and Hell - that the near-death experience seems to offer.

The near-death experience (NDE) is intriguing for two major reasons. First, it is very common and secondly, it is cross-cultural. The results of one NOP survey in America suggest that over 1 million Americans have 'seen the light'. Any experience that is so common must have had some influence on the way we think about life and death. Indeed, it could be the very engine that drives our ideas of an afterlife.

Many people believe that in the NDE we are given glimpses of Heaven (or Hell). But it is just as reasonable to assume that it is the NDE itself which may have shaped our very ideas about Heaven and Hell.

The experiences described in this book are all first-hand accounts from people who wrote to me or to David Lorimer, chairman of the International Association of Near Death Studies (UK), after a television programme, radio broadcast or magazine or newspaper article made them aware of our interest in near-death experiences.

We asked about the effects that the NDE had on the subject.
We also wanted to know how many people had read about NDEs before their experience. This was important, since if the subject already knew about the experience before it occurred, then it would be reasonable to suppose that his or her NDE could to some extent be coloured by this.

It is from this database that the statistics quoted in this book have been drawn, and the accounts given to me by these people and by others who have written to me since then form the basis of the book. But their accounts provided much more than mere statistics. Each one was special in its own way, and provided a personal testimony which I found both moving and utterly sincere. It is very seldom that an author can so truthfully say that without others a book could not have been written - in this case, without these people there would, indeed, have been no book. I feel privileged to have been allowed to read their accounts, and I am grateful to everyone who, by being willing to share their experience with me, has helped in this search to find the truth in the light

Peter Fenwick
December 1994

5.0 étoiles sur 5 comprehensive and interesting study 29 juin 2000
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
This book is a rather comprehensive study of the phenomenon known as NDE's or near-death experiences. It is written by the president of the British branch of The International Association for Near Death Studies.
Many different first hand experiences are presented on people (mostly from Britain) who have had either near death, or similar non-near death experiences. The author painstakingly analyzes the similarities and differences of these experiences. He also explains in great detail the physiological and chemical (hypercarbia, endorphins, drugs, etc) similarities and differences of brain function during trauma and near death scenarios.
Through all this, the author does not attempt to make a strong case for an afterlife or otherworld consciousness, but to provide as much evidence as is available to make an assessment. The author's admission is that according to science, the possibility of the soul or the continuation of personal consciousness are simply theories with little or no evidence to support them. However, he certainly doesn't rule out the possibility of an afterlife, citing many intriguing and compelling elements of the true NDE which science or hard facts cannot explain and could not really be considered "evidentiary." But one of his biggest questions is: How can knowledge and experiences exist in a spiritual world when the medium which originally stored them, the brain, is gone?
These are just a few of many elements and observations which make this a fine book. It is both fascinating and challenging and is highly recommended to anyone interested in NDE's.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 solid and much under-read study of NDEs 5 février 2010
Par Marineboy - Publié sur Amazon.com
This is an example of a doctor-authored book on the subject of the near death experience the way it should be done. The technique, as with other books of this kind, is to solicit volunteered reports. Clearly this method has serious limitations and you want to take care to make sure that what you can legitimately claim matches up with your research method. Fenwick achieves this well.

Probably the most interesting part of the book is when Dr Fenwick brings his neuropsychiatrist expertise to the subject areas of anoxia and memory. The question of how NDErs manage to "remember" their experiences when the brain has just recovered from a profound trauma is an important one, as it is very common for experiences immediately preceding such a trauma to be forgotten altogether.

Another really interesting factor thrown up by this study was the substantial difference in the frequency of so called "life reviews" between American cases and the UK based research sample of the author. The UK study turned up VERY few such reviews of the dramatic and detailed kind populating the American cases. This strongly suggests that there is something about the American psyche which lends itself to that component. This seems to be borne out to some degree when considering the American fascination with psychotherapy and analysis of almost infinite variation, something that your average brit (rightly or wrongly) is much more likely to look upon with scorn. This seems unlikely to be a coincidence, though, certainly, it would need a further study of some kind to actually establish that as the cause. One way or another, this seems a fairly essential difference between the American and UK cases.

Yet another interesting feature of the book is the Indian cases included, although these are snatched from another study elsewhere. The case of Durga Jatav for instance, who was dragged away (in the experience) in front of the judge of the dead, where his legs were "cut off at the knees". When you read these accounts, it is glaringly obvious that there is no single worldwide thing called a "near death experience" as some people believe. Rather, what exists is a loosely collected bunch of very approximately similar experiences once you peel away all the layers of cultural imagery (in the Indian cases, for instance, at least in the studies described here, that imagery revolves around the gods of the dead and "clerical errors". In the West the imagery revolves around "dead relatives" and many more meetings with a Christian-style god of light as opposed to the leg-amputating Yama and his henchmen.

A very good study that covers a lot of interesting ground. The next stage is to ask whether people who perceive themselves to be out of body really are out of body, and whether people remembering events, especially as influencing the lives of others, are remembering these correctly. At some point this subject has to emerge from the protective shelter of anecdote.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 No nonsense approach to NDE 16 février 2008
Par Katherine A. Kennedy - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
A no-nonsense, scientific analysis of the phenomenon of Near Death Experiences. Written from a skeptical point of view, leaving the reader to make their own conclusions on if this phenomenon is a glimpse into the afterlife or something that science can explain. Scientific explanations are given for accounts of NDE, yet there is still, admitted by the skeptical author, aspects of NDE that not even science can explain.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Compelling and objective study of NDEs 29 avril 2010
Par far middle - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
This book is a pleasure to read, for several reasons. As others have noted, it is a very well written and objective study of Near-Death Experiences, based on some 350 case studies. The author explores why some of these experiences may be explainable by scientific means (for example, anoxia), but also points out that there are rather large inconsistencies/problems with any of these explanations, leaving the door open to the possibility that indeed what is happening is a "glimpse of heaven". 98% of the individuals who had the experience in his study had previously never heard of an "NDE", yet there is an amazing similarity to the experiences: the out-of-body experience, the travelling through a tunnel, the approaching a light or figure representing great joy and peace; the feeling of calm and happiness. All very reassuring to anyone who has thought about what is on "the other side"! Nearly every experience is extremely positive, and left the subject afterwards unafraid of death.

The fact that the subjects span a wide range of characteristics is also intriguing: old, young, religious, not religious, workingmen, ordinary people, etc.

Unexplainable aspects persist: why isn't every experience the same? Why do some of the experiences occur in serious but not necessarily life-threatening situations? Why do some people feel it was they who made the decision to "return" to their body, and others that the decision was made for them by some other entity?

It is a fascinating subject which explores some of the basic questions of life: is there a soul which persists after this life? If so, what happens to it?

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Good book for those just learning about NDE's 11 juin 2013
Par D. Roberts - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I actually like his book "The Art of Dying" better than this one. However, this book is excellent for those just beginning to investigate NDE's because he puts in a lot of history and research information about the phenomena, and if you are a believer, it is what you've already read in many other books. I actually prefer Raymond Moody's books on NDE's, though this is a very well-written book and I would recommend it to a skeptic or someone who is just starting to study the subject.
