Fearless Books is pleased to announce the second paperback edition of THE SECRET SCIENCE OF THE SOUL, originally published in hardcover as THE END OF MATERIALISM by Noetic Books/New Harbinger (2009). This edition features a new Preface for 2017 by author Charles Tart, as well as the original Foreword by Huston Smith, PhD and Kendra Smith.

Science seems to tell us that we are all unintended products of blind biological and chemical forces, leading meaningless lives that will eventually end in death. The truth is that unseen forces such as telepathy, clairvoyance, precognition, psychokinesis, psychic healing, and other phenomena inextricably link us to the spiritual world. While many skeptics and scientists deny the existence of these phenomena, the experiences of millions of people indicate that they do take place.

In this book, transpersonal psychologist Charles Tart presents over fifty years of scientific research conducted at the nation's leading universities that proves humans do have natural spiritual impulses and abilities. THE SECRET SCIENCE OF THE SOUL makes an elegant argument for the union of science and spirituality in light of this new evidence, and explains why a truly rational viewpoiunt must address the reality of the spiritual world. Tart's work marks the beginning of an evidence-based spiritual awakening that will profoundly influence your understanding of the deeper forces at work in our lives.

(Editor's note: I am ambivalent about putting anything on TASTE that is in the slightest way commercial, but since I will be using the referral fees from web sales of this just published book to help support the TASTE project, and because the material will be of great practical interest to the kinds of people who visit and contribute to this site, I've decided to make this information available. The following is modified from the book jacket.)

Charles T. Tart is internationally known for his more than 50 years of research on the nature of consciousness, altered states of consciousness (ASCs) and parapsychology, and is one of the founders of the field of Transpersonal (spiritual) Psychology. His and other scientists’ work convinced him that there is a real and vitally important sense in which we are spiritual beings, but the too dominant, scientistic, materialist philosophy of our times, masquerading as genuine science, dogmatically denies any possible reality to the spiritual.

Professor Tart writes: I am proud to finally announce the 2009 publication of what may be my most important book. Three+ years to write, fifty+ years to prepare to write.
