Explaining the Unexplained: Mysteries of the Paranormal

Eysenck, Hans J., & Sargent, Carl

 Two British psychologists summarize the evidence for psi and attempt to show how parapsychological findings are of use in creating a general scientific world view. They begin with an examination of the evidence for psi, concluding that it is strong enough to warrant the framing of theories as to how and why psi functions. They also examine psychokinesis, psychic healing, and survival. Two chapters are devoted to altered states and psi, one to Stanford's PMIR theory, and another to physics and psi, with emphasis on Walker's theory. The final chapter provides a response to critics of parapsychology and calls for a multi-disciplinary laboratory approach to the investigation of psi. Readers are invited to take part in a mass ESP experiment called "The Psi Factor Experiment" conducted by Sargent.
