Harry Settani's work explores psychic or paranormal phenomena from a uniquely philosophical perspective. Today's forms of science cannot accommodate the reality of the paranormal and therefore, Settanni proposes, the current view of reality must be changed in order to establish the real possibilities for such phenomena. The author discusses such notions as Whitehead's Fallacy of Simple Location and seeks to define the content for twentieth century science. Contents: The Ethical Impact of Twentieth Century Science; Psychic Phenomena and Twentieth Century Physics; The Mind: Is It Merely the Activity of the Brain?; The Problem of Personal Identity; Dimensions; Space-Time and Spinoza; Seeds; The Last Frontier; Atoms and Eidos: The Emerging Contemporary Philosophy.
