Parapsychology
Summary expansion
Containing contributions from leading paranormal researchers, this edition of Parapsychology continues to challenge and provoke readers with some of psychology's most puzzling phenomena. Whether believers or sceptics, the book provides readers with the opportunity to further their understanding of the paranormal, bridging the gap between traditional psychology and its so-called fringe areas. Featuring updates to many of the original chapters, this book brings readers up to date with the wealth of radical research in the field. This edition also includes several new chapters, covering subjects as diverse as possession and exorcism, conspiracy theories, reincarnation, and religious belief, many of which are extremely relevant in the world today. Drawing on a range of research, the book provides a balanced introduction to parapsychology, exploring the strengths and limitations of scientific investigation itself. Parapsychology is for readers from a variety of backgrounds: professionals in the field, students, lay readers and anyone who wants to understand what the paranormal can tell us about ourselves. A variety of viewpoints are on offer, with the emphasis on the reader to make up their own mind. Prepared to be unsettled, again
