About this product
- DescriptionWhitley Strieber and Jeffrey J. team up on this unprecedented and intellectually vibrant new framing of inexplicable events and experiences. Rather than merely document the amalous, these authors - one, the man who popularised alien abduction and, the other, a rewned scholar and renegade advocate for including the pararmal in religious studies (The New York Times) - deliver a fast-paced and exhilarating study of why the supernatural is neither fantasy r fiction, but a vital and authentic aspect of life. Their suggestion? That all kinds of impossible things, from extra-dimensional beings to bilocation to bumps in the night, are t impossible at all - rather, they are a part of our natural world. But this natural world is immeasurably more weird, more wonderful and probably more populated than we have so far imagined with our current categories and cultures, which are what really make these things seem impossible. THE SUPER NATURAL considers that the natural world is actually a super natural world - and all we have to do to see this is to change the lenses through which we are looking at it and the languages through which we are presently limiting it. In short - the extraordinary exists if we kw how to look at and think about it.
- Author BiographyWhitley Streiber is best known for his groundbreaking memoir Communion, which popularised the alien-abduction thesis. Jeffrey J. Kripal is the J. Newton Rayzor Professor of Philosophy and Religious Thought and chair of the Department of Religious Studies at Rice University.
