Parapsychology and Anthropology: Proceedings of an International Conference Held in London, England, August 29-31, 1973
Angoff, Allan, & Barth, Diana (Eds.).
|Half of the 18 conference participants in the Parapsychology Foundation’s 22nd international conference on parapsychology were anthropologists and half were identified with parapsychology. Some of the papers by parapsychologists are oriented toward empirical psi research, particularly those of Brier, the Kreitlers, and Van de Castle. The anthropological contributions tend to stress the nature of primitive beliefs about psi and the supernatural rather than empirically investigating the truth of claims. Several papers describe possible psi practices in primitive societies.|
