Description

The precognitive dream is a compelling, real-world phenomenon that still stands outside the purview of orthodox science. It is spoken about anecdotally and has been alluded to time and time again by renowned psychiatrists, psychologists, neurologists, and other clinicians expounding upon the nature of their patients narratives. However, it receives no empirical airtime because it is incommensurable with conventional explanations of human consciousness like the embodied mind hypothesis and with unconscious philosophical attitudes espoused by disciples of an ostensibly irrevocable Cartesian-Kantian account of the cosmos. This volume examines precognitive dream experiences, offering a comprehensive source of integrated information pertaining to their history and overarching features, their potential neural underpinnings, and the implications for consciousness and competing philosophical theories of determinism and non-determinism. It will serve as a useful reference for both researchers and clinicians hoping to gain insight into an age-old, sublime phenomenon.
