I know that several different philosophy currents touch the subject of what we are as humans, what does it mean to be alive, and if we are something transcendent to the mere bodily representation that we have. I am aware that there are great differences in what these philosophies proclaim.
Some of these currents conclude that we, as alive persons exist beyond the realm of pure physicality and continue to exist when our bodies cease to live. Furthermore, I think most religions are based on different philosophies on this side.
However, are there any specific philosophic currents that, along this path, have come to describe what could be concluded as paranormal? For instance, if A concludes that we exist beyond our bodies, but for X reason we may still interact with reality, then it would — naively — explain for what is popularly known as "ghosts", "appearances" and all that.
My question is: Do these philosophies, leading to the concept of para-normality, exist?
