This volume contains a collation of opinions as to a future life by some of the world's most eminent scientific men & thinkers. Endeavoring to console one even nearer his brother than Mr. Thompson, he realized how unprepared, how barren is the average mind in the face of the seemingly great catastrophe of death. In the absence of absolute demonstration, at hand & ready at all times, the reasons, principles & inferences for this belief cannot be too numerous; for they must contend with the evidence of the world of sense, a world to which the greater part of mankind for the most part confines its activities. Most persons reading here the reasons & deductions given by those whose thought make up this symposium, will, it is Thompson's belief, close the book with satisfaction, and with the conviction of knowledge, rather than faith, of, if you prefer, as well as faith, that there is a life after death.
