Description - Parapsychology by David Groome
Containing contributions from some of the leading figures in Europe on the paranormal, "Parapsychology" challenges and provokes readers with an examination of some of the most puzzling phenomena in psychology. It invites readers to step into the shoes of scientists (believers and sceptics alike) to see not only how they must approach the array of weird and wonderful events that demand their attention, but also the tools that they use to do their job. A range of topics is considered including; dream telepathy, near death experiences, alien abductions, belief in astrology, placebo effects and awareness during anaesthesia and in comas. In addition readers have the opportunity to engage in experiments with the authors. Exploring these and other areas, the book bridges the gap between traditional psychology and its so called fringe areas, providing accessible accounts of how science works on the border of its last frontier: the human mind. "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 as we set out into 21st century.
A variety of viewpoints are on offer, with the emphasis on the reader to make their own mind up. Prepared to be unsettled..
