Does some aspect of our personality survive bodily death? Long a philosophical and theological question, in the 20th century this became the subject of scientific research. Fifty years ago, in 1967, Ian Stevenson, then chair of UVA's Department of Psychiatry, created a research unit—now named the Division of Perceptual Studies—to study what, if anything, of the human personality survives after death. Dr. Stevenson's own research investigated hundreds of accounts of young children who claimed to recall past lives. In this Medical Center Hour, faculty from the Division of Perceptual Studies highlight the unit's work since its founding, including studies of purported past lives, near-death experiences, and mind-brain interactions in phenomena such as deep meditation, veridical out-of-body experiences, deathbed visions, apparent communication from deceased persons, altered states of consciousness, and terminal lucidity in persons with irreversible brain damage. As the division enters its second half-century, what are its research priorities and partnerships?

At age 14, a young Canadian boy named “Johnathan” decided to murder his friend and fellow schoolmate during a lunchtime recess. He later turned himself in, was found guilty of first degree murder, and is now serving a life sentence in a medium security prison. While on trial, “Johnathan” was labeled as a psychopath, a person with no ability to feel remorse or empathy for his actions. Psychopaths have a rich history in the media of being portrayed as mastermind serial killers and mass murderers. The real truth behind these individuals is much more frightening and serious than most people imagine. Psychopaths account for approximately 3% of society, and many of that percentage has never and will never see the inside of a prison cell. Psychopathic individuals hold many important posts in society such as business, corporate, politics and military. Although many of them will never commit actual crimes, they still leave an unmistakable mark on the people around them and a wake of broken promises and broken hearts everywhere they go. This film explores the factors that create psychopaths in society and the ways to identify these individuals. Factors such as genetics, parenting, and consumerism play vital roles in determining the interpersonal bonds that children form in the earliest years of life. Through interviews with professionals, doctors, and even a psychopath himself, the public can gain better knowledge of what causes children to develop into adult psychopaths and hopefully decide to stem these causes at their roots.

This film series explores many aspects of our society. To rethink what is possible in our world, we need to consider what kind of world we want to live in. Although we refer to it as a civilization, it is anything but civilized. Visions of global unity & fellowship have long inspired humanity, yet the social arrangements up to the present have largely failed to produce a peaceful and productive world. While we appear to be technically advanced, our values and behaviors are not. The possibility of an optimistic future is in stark contrast to our current social, economic, and environmental dilemmas. The Choice Is Ours includes interviews with notable scientists, media professionals, authors, and other thinkers exploring the difficulties we face.
