The Satan Trap: Dangers of the Occult

Ebon, Martin (Ed.).

 Ebon, prolific author and editor of popular works on parapsychology, introduces this collection in the following words: "Writers on such subjects as telepathy, clairvoyance, prophecy, mind-over-matter phenomena and other psychic practices must constantly be alert to the danger of presenting their subject only in glowing and positive terms. There is another side, a dark side to these phenomena, and in our time this darkness seems to be spreading. On the one hand, scientific study of the frontiers of the human mind is today more active than ever in history. But on the other hand, we are also experiencing a virtual epidemic of irresponsible toying with psychic powers" (p. vii). There are 25 selections by parapsychologists, psychiatrists, psychologists, and writers who describe the potential dangers involved in the overzealous pursuit of personal psychic experience.
