Psychic-Nexus: Psychic Phenomena in Psychiatry and Everyday Life

Schwarz, Berthold Eric

 A psychiatrist, Schwarz presents many examples of the psychodynamics of psi (he coins the term "psychic-dynamics" for it) from his practice, his personal life, and his experiments. It is the aim of the book not only to describe the psychology and psychopathology of psi but to enable the reader to develop his or her own ability to be aware of and make use of psi. With the exception of a Postscript, the first 15 chapters were previously published in journals. However, in regard to the cases used, new or expanded cases have been added to avoid duplication or to augment abbreviated examples. In a useful 13-page Introduction, Schwarz provides an informative autobiographical account of how his interest in psi developed and how he followed up on it, thus providing a broader framework that helps to integrate the selections. In the 16th and last chapter, "Postscript: Possible `Impossibilities'," he makes some observations about the nature of psi research and psi investigators.
