Psyche's Exile Jerry Kroth, Ph.D read online review & book description:

“Psyche” means “soul” in Greek, and “psychology” literally means ‘the study of the soul.’ For over a century American psychology has gone in precisely the opposite direction. Soul = mind, and mind = brain with no exceptions! This reductionist paradigm is challenged in this book as Professor Kroth reviews eight politically incorrect, ‘forbidden’ databases in his empirical pursuit of the immortal soul of the ages: near-death experiences, deathbed visions, precognitive dreams, premonitions, synchronicity, telepathy, states of possession, just to name a few. The odyssey leads to a fascinating rediscovery of the soul.

Reviews: "Psyche’s Exile . . is an absolute treasure trove of carefully collected experiential and experimental data spanning the research areas of anthropology, sociology, religion, spirituality, psychology, and physics. Although we are still some human evolutionary time away from experimentally proving the existence of the human soul, there is certainly enough good data available at present to make it a viable working hypothesis. 
Dr. Kroth is dedicated to his craft as a professional explorer of nature in its many forms. For myself, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this book to my scientific colleagues and my friends." 

—William A. Tiller, Ph.D., professor of physics: Stanford University.

"Whether atheist, agnostic, or believer, only a rigidly closed-minded person, could ever find this book anything but fascinating. It is the most intellectually exciting, page-turning voyage of discovery I have been on for a very long time."
— Jeff Kisling, Ph.D., psychotherapist, Palo Alto 

"Jerry Kroth has pulled off an intellectual coup d'etat. All of our comfort-zone empirical security blankets have often been weighed in the balance and found wanting—or at least pedestrian and doctrinaire. This work has the potential to remind us that all of our most sophisticated and elaborate scientific procedures are, after all, limited only to what the senses—or their extensions—can access. This work makes me feel like we have broken "the surly bonds of earth” and could very well be 
on the leading edge of a “paradigm shift” in the study of psychology. Professor Kroth brings both a depth and a breadth of scholarship to the task of expanding the 
boundaries of psychological thought beyond its usual attempts to 
imitate the so-called “hard sciences.” 

—Walter Moretz, M.Div., Ph.D, 
Professor Emeritus, Pastoral Psychology, George Mason University 

"I am enthralled! This is a refreshing leap from the encrusted time-worn answers we were all raised to believe. I particularly loved the objectivity, depth of knowledge, and the understandings of images and symbols. I have no doubt this 
book will be greeted as a significant contribution." 

—William Yabroff, Ph.D., Professor Emeritus, Pacifica Graduate School Author of The Inner Image
