New Thinking Allowed

When I record video conversations with members of the P.A. for the New Thinking Allowed channel on YouTube, I also post here. Many other interviews, relevant to parapsychology, with non-members can be viewed at

InPresence 0008: My Hero William James with Jeffrey Mishlove

InPresence host, Jeffrey Mishlove, PhD, is author of The Roots of Consciousness, Psi Development Systems, and The PK Man. Between 1986 and 2002 he hosted and co-produced the original Thinking Allowed public television series. He is the recipient of the only doctoral diploma in "parapsychology" ever awarded by an accredited university (University of California, Berkeley, 1980). For many years he served as president of the non-profit Intuition Network, an organization dedicated to creating a world in which all people were supported and encouraged in developing inner intuitive abilities.

Here he shares his fascination for and resonance with William James. James is widely regarded as the father of both American psychology and religious studies. Additionally he is regarded as a major philosopher and one of the founders of the American school of pragmatic philosophy. Furthermore, he was deeply engaged in psychical research and the quest to understand the possibility of survival after death. James overcame both depression and illness to achieve greatness.
