Overview [Back Cover]

Among the great apostles of Spiritism, the presence of Léon Denis deserves a very distinctive place, particularly in view of having been the logical follower of llan Kardec’s work. Despite his intense devotion to the study of Spiritism in its three aspects—science, philosophy, and religion—he dedicated mostly to its philosophical aspect.

Among his works, "After Death" is one of the most important books of classic Spiritist literature. In his poetic prose, a style that we find in his books, Léon Denis presents a scientific and rational solution regarding the problems of life and death, and of the nature and destiny of the human ego in its successive lives.

This book is an able and luminous account of the phenomena and doctrines included under the term "Spiritualism," their relation to modern science and their influence on conduct. It is therefore not surprising that "After Death" has been translated into several languages and that it continues to elate people all over the world.


About the Author

Léon Denis was born on January 1, 1846 in Foug, Meurthe-et-Moselle, France. He was a notable spiritist philosopher and after the death of Allan Kardec, the codifier of the Spiritist Doctrine, he became one of the principal exponents of spiritism, together with Gabriel Delanne and Camille Flammarion. Léon Denis lectured throughout Europe at international conferences of Spiritism and spiritualism, promoting the idea of survival of the soul after death and the implications of this for human relations. He is known as the apostle of French Spiritism. He died on March 12, 1927.
