Parapsychology: The Controversial Science

Richard Broughton, Author Ballantine Books $22 (408p) ISBN 978-0-345-35638-3
If claims for ESP, clairvoyance, mind-over-matter and other psychic phenomena are valid, ``the so-called laws of physics will have to be rewritten,'' maintains the author. His careful, low-key survey of modern parapsychology ranges from psychic dreams and apparitions to out-of-body experiences, reincarnation and investigations of ghosts and hauntings. Broughton, research director of the Institute for Parapsychology in North Carolina, presents an impressive array of documented evidence suggesting that psychic phenomena may be authentic. As a state-of-the-art snapshot of contemporary research, this report should appeal to the open-minded reader. Broughton contends that future research will demonstrate psi to be an unusual but practical human ability. (July)
