Many happy returns? Investigating reincarnation claims in the Lebanon

Professor Chris French on the the reincarnation claims of the Druse.

The arguments put forward in support of reincarnation are critically evaluated with particular emphasis on the version of reincarnation held by the Druse.
The Druse are members of a religious sect founded in 1042, who live mainly in Lebanon, Syria, Jordan and Israel. A number of cases from an investigation in 1998 in Lebanon will be presented and evaluated.

Chris French is a Professor of Psychology and Head of the Anomalistic Psychology Research Unit in the Psychology Department at Goldsmiths College, University of London. His main current area of research is the psychology of paranormal beliefs and anomalous experiences. He frequently appears on radio and television casting a sceptical eye over paranormal claims.
