Description:

A look at the phenomenon of near-death experiences (NDEs) and how they are perceived by the scientific community, with arguments for and against scientific explanations of such occurrences.

From the Paper:

"The scientific aspects surrounding the near-death experience are more obscure than the popular accounts and non-substantial definitions of them. Researcher Charles T. Tart says that science can actually help to further our knowledge of the NDE if more people would attempt to embrace the application of scientific ideas in studying its occurrence. He says: ".many people react negatively to the idea of scientific investigation of NDEs, but genuine science can contribute a great deal to understanding NDEs and helping experiencers integrate their experiences with everyday life"(Tart, 1997). The factors surrounding the near-death experience have been researched by a number of scientists, and a number of facts, similarities, and correlations have been discovered surrounding this very difficult, largely undocumented phenomena. "
