Del Mar, CA (PressExposure) March 02, 2009 -- Join Alex Tsakiris for an interview with world-renowned near-death experience researcher and author of The Art of Dying, Dr. Peter Fenwick. During the hour-long interview Dr. Fenwick suggests that recent discoveries on the phenomenology of dying is causing us to question some of the materialistic assumptions of science:
âWhat has happened in materialistic science is that weâre denying the events. If youâre a materialist, you canât not look at the phenomenology -- you have to do that. Then of course, itâs a question of creating the theories which will encompass the phenomena into worldview rather than saying they canât occur, therefore theyâre not there.â

Peter Fenwick, M.D., F.R.C.Psych., is Senior Lecturer at the Institute of Psychiatry, Kings College, London, and author of The Art of Dying.
