The Father of the Near-Death Experience
Bookmark and Share
Our guest today, Dr. Raymond Moody, is the man who pioneered modern research into NDE’s.  His interest in the subject began with his study of early Greek philosophy, and Plato’s powerful story of the warrior Er – the classic tale of near-death experience as told in Plato’s Republic.  Dr. Moody’s PhD in philosophy was followed a few years later by an MD in psychiatry, and his work in forensic psychiatry. Dr. Moody is best known for his groundbreaking, best-selling 1975 book, Life After Life, in which he coined the term "near-death experience."  Many books later, we know that was just the beginning of his exploration of how we might understand NDEs in a world given over to the constricted notion that the scientific method is the only path to knowledge.
