Bad Karma: Thinking Twice About the Social Consequences of Reincarnation Theory.


Bad karma; thinking twice about the social consequences of reincarnation theory.

Garrett, William.

Univ. Press of America


236 pages




Garrett (philosophy and religion, John F. Kennedy U., California) argues that belief in reincarnation generates a mind-set that is conducive to the emergence of social castes. He is concerned that should such belief come to dominate in American culture, then social caste--not merely social class--will become a real possibility.
