Philosophy and Psychical Research

Thakur, Shivesh C. (Ed.).

 The aim of this collection is to portray the full extent of the interest in psychical research on the part of philosophers, whether skeptical or convinced as regards the reality of psi phenomena. The chapters are by philosophers who were asked to write on whatever aspect of philosophy as related to parapsychology interested them most. The authors and the titles of their papers are as follows: Alan Gauld, "ESP and Attempts to Explain It"; Bob Brier, "The Metaphysics of Precognition"; David E. Cooper, "ESP and the Materialist Theory of Mind"; Antony Flew, "The Sources of Serialism"; Jonathan Harrison, "Religion and Psychical Research"; Pamela M. Huby, "Some Aspects of the Problem of Survival"; Hywel D. Lewis, "Religion and the Paranormal"; C.W.K. Mundle, "On the `Psychic' Powers of Nonhuman Animals"; Michael Scriven, "Explanations of the Supernatural"; and Shivesh C. Thakur, "Telepathy, Evolution and Dualism."
