J.B. Rhine: On the Frontiers of Science

Rao, K. Ramakrishna (Ed.).

 This volume is a collection of essays about J. B. Rhine and the significance of his work written by parapsychologists who knew him and were intimately familiar with his work. Most of the papers were given originally at a conference held in memory of Rhine. Those by Chari, Dommeyer, and Robinson were written specifically for this volume. There is a chronology of important events in J. B. Rhine's life, a bibliography of his works, and one on works about him. The other essays are by Beloff, Child, Feather, Hall, Inglis, Johnson, Kanthamani, Koestler, Mackenzie, Mauskopf, McMahan, Palmer, Rao, L. E. Rhine, Schmeidler, Truzzi, and McVaugh. The subject of this book is not only J. B. Rhine and his work but parapsychology itself for roughly the years 1930-1960. Many of the essays place Rhine and parapsychology in the larger context of history, psychology, philosophy, and science.
