In 1921, when the second edition of Der Okkultismus Im Modernen Weltbild was translated from the German, the explanation for phenomena so strange in nature, so mysterious, was deeply sought by the scientific community.

Occult concepts which are in clear contradiction of science have always existed. Only so long as telephathy, clairvoyance and materialization appear as something out of the ordinary, are they surrounded by an aura of mystery.

Occultism and Modern Science offers investigations into the domains of Spiritualism and parapsychology through an examination of classic cases of purported mediums and the conflicting revelations of the Theosophical movement. The book ends with a scope for further investigations of the findings and will provide much thought in readers seeking answers.

About the Author:

Traugott Konstantin Oesterreich (1880-1945) was a noted professor of philosophy at Tubingen University in Germany.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

"What makes Occultism so repellent to the professional scientist is the mental milieu in which the problematic facts under observation are so often presented. The parapsychologic problems exercise a peculaiarly fascinating influence on all half-educated individuals, whose inherited conceptions of the universe have been uprooted, but who long, nevertheless, for more complete knowledge. They are drawn to them as moths to the light of arc-lamps" -- From the Introduction
