What is consciousness? How does it relate to the brain, to the mind? Does it even extend beyond them? And if so, might those experiences -- telepathy, extrasensory perception, near death experiences -- be called 'paranormal' because we can't explain them by any normal means? Anything with a firm belief structure, whether it is science or religious faith, limits experimentation and a free spirit of enquiry. I wanted to find a synthesis between these two fields of experience, the measurable and the immeasurable. And it seemed to me that the best - indeed, the only way I could find out more was by finding people who had such immeasurable experiences and studying them. A few years ago I was introduced by a friend to a philosopher, Alain Forget, who, I was told, had a remarkable ability to give 'energy. During this 'energy-giving' process my friend had been aware of light radiating from him. My own ego wanted to persuade this unusual man to allow me to put him under the microscope. But in doing so I found myself, perhaps reluctantly at times, under the microscope of his perceptual grasp of human nature. And I realise that it has changed me, and that much of what I thought about myself was not based in reality. This book tells that story. Peter Fenwick

A TODAY SHOW #ReadWithJenna BOOK CLUB PICK! INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BEST SELLER Finalist for the WOMEN'S PRIZE Yaa Gyasi's stunning follow-up to her acclaimed national best seller Homegoing is a powerful, raw, intimate, deeply layered novel about a Ghanaian family in Alabama. Gifty is a sixth-year PhD candidate in neuroscience at the Stanford University School of Medicine studying reward-seeking behavior in mice and the neural circuits of depression and addiction. Her brother, Nana, was a gifted high school athlete who died of a heroin overdose after an ankle injury left him hooked on OxyContin. Her suicidal mother is living in her bed. Gifty is determined to discover the scientific basis for the suffering she sees all around her. But even as she turns to the hard sciences to unlock the mystery of her family's loss, she finds herself hungering for her childhood faith and grappling with the evangelical church in which she was raised, whose promise of salvation remains as tantalizing as it is elusive. Transcendent Kingdom is a deeply moving portrait of a family of Ghanaian immigrants ravaged by depression and addiction and grief—a novel about faith, science, religion, love. Exquisitely written, emotionally searing, this is an exceptionally powerful follow-up to Gyasi's phenomenal debut.

Transcendence The Artist as Seer in the Age of Thoreau Essays by Franccedil;ois Specq Franccedil;ois Specq, one of Europes rising stars in the field of American studies, explores major works by authors and artists of the American Renaissance, a time when our nation had reached a decisive crossroads between the traditional values and forms of expression inherited from the Puritans and the radically new voices and visions of the Transcendentalist writers and the Hudson River painters. These became the seers who discerned higher laws and deeper meanings, opening the way to a more inclusive democracy and a spiritual rebirth of the individual. An incisive critical intellect illumines these dazzling essays, many of which are here translated for the first time. Widely respected for his annotated French translation and critical edition of Henry Thoreaus The Maine Woods (2004), Professor Specq displays an incisive intellect and a studied familiarity with the creative minds that founded an enduring American culture in the stimulating and tumultuous decades before the Civil War. Among the writers Specq discusses are Henry David Thoreau, Ralph Waldo Emerson and Daniel Webster. Their work is explored in terms of the people with whom they interacted and the major changes they advocated and succeeded in making in American thought. Further, in his exploration of Manifest Destiny and the vision of an American Empire, Specq examines the contribution of painters such as Frederic Church, whose panoramic approach to the American landscape created the mind set for the cultural reformation sought by the Transcendentalists.
