9780907845485: Psi Wars: Getting to Grips with the Paranormal (Journal of Consciousness Studies)

At the heart of the parapsychology (psi) battle are two types of phenomena: extra-sensory perception (ESP) and psycho-kinesis (PK). ESP is reception of information without any normal sensory means; PK is the use of the mind to influence physical states without any direct physical contact. Neither effect can be explained by ordinary science, so parapsychologists with experimental evidence that they are real are accused of bad science or bad faith or both. This collection of essays shows that a simple division into 'sceptics' and ‘believers’ cannot be made. The real struggle, for all researchers, is not with each other, but to get a secure hold on the subject itself.

Review:

"Can we expect a fair discussion from such a provocative lead [title and cover illustration]? Yes, we can!"

(Stanley Schmidt Journal of Scientific Exploration)

"The debate is pursued in a polite and refreshingly reasonable style."

(Donald J. West Journal of the Society for Psychical Research)

"Authoritative and accessible review of the state of scientific research into paranormal phenomena... Anyone seeking something more sophisticated than the usual mud-slinging should buy this book."

(Robert Matthews New Scientist)

"Refreshingly insists that psi must not be written off because it is not cononant with presently known laws."

(Hugh Montefiori Christian Parapsychologist)
