Summary
"In this book Thomson Hudson follows up on some of the principles laid down in his previous book The Law of Psychic Phenomena. That work was devoted almost exclusively to the consideration of the mental characteristics and powers of man as we find him in this life. The present work is devoted to a scientific inquiry concerning his prospects for a future life. In pursuing this inquiry, he has endeavored to follow the strictest rules of scientific induction. The object of this book is to outline a method of scientific inquiry concerning the powers, attributes, and destiny of the soul, and to specifically point out and classify a sufficient number of the well-authenticated facts of psychic science to demonstrate the fact of a future life for mankind. The earlier chapters are devoted to a review of the principal arguments for immortality heretofore advanced, with the view of showing their invalidity from a scientific standpoint, as well as demonstrating the necessity for a new departure in the methods of treating this the most important problem of human existence. In demonstrating the fact of a future life, the author has simply analyzed the mental organization of man, and shown that, from the very nature of his physical, intellectual, and psychical structure and organism, any other conclusion than that he is destined to a future life is logically and scientifically untenable. His general conclusions confirm the essential doctrines of the Christian religion, and invest them with a scientific value possessed by no other religion on earth"--Preface.
