Ethical Considerations for Applied Psychic and Afterlife Science

Amazon Print and Kindle

As science advances, it is crucial to consider its impact on society.

Beyond the Physical: Ethical Considerations for Applied Psychic and Afterlife Science is a thought-provoking exploration of the ethical implications of applying psychic (psi) abilities and afterlife (survival) science in a speculative future where they are part of the mainstream scientific paradigm. In this book, author and parapsychologist Mark Boccuzzi examines issues ranging from consent and privacy in psychic communication to potential political, social, and economic impacts.

Using a range of ethical frameworks and social justice perspectives, Boccuzzi provides a comprehensive examination of the ethical considerations related to integrating these phenomena into society. Readers will be challenged to consider topics such as autonomy, beneficence, justice, and non-maleficence as they relate to the reality of these phenomena and their potential impact on society. This book offers a compelling look at the intersection of psi and survival and its ethical implications.
