Projectiology is the general term used to define the scientific study of paranormal and anomalous capacities of consciousness.


The book provides a foundation and proposed structure for establishing a science of consciousness through an updated, contemporary paradigm. That paradigm is considered to be updated since it investigates the nature and limits of consciousness using paranormal phenomena (in particular the out-of-body experience) as an exploratory tool, and thus is not constrained by the mechanistic paradigm. The book has several sections that comprehensively analyze paranormal or anomalous experiences, including synopses of scientific research into certain key phenomena. In reaching its conclusions it examines the spectrum of positions on consciousness research from throughout history, as evidenced by its bibliography of almost 1,907 entries from works in 18 languages.


You will note that the sections of the book that we propose using for the course are related with the epistemological and ontological discussions as well as the methodological issues involved in consciousness studies. In addition, parts have been specifically included that may provoke debate on aspects of consciousness such as self-awareness and lucidity.


We propose binding the selected chapters and making them available to the students as course materials. We have already obtained permission from the publisher to reproduce those chapters for inclusion in the materials. The approximate cost to the student will be US$28.70. I have enclosed a list of those chapters for your information.
