Lectures on the History and Decline of Parapsychology

June 12th, 2013 Posted in General

I’m going to be attending this lecture given by by George Hansen on Saturday, June 15 at 5pm, titled History of Parapsychology and Psychical Research. This lecture will be immediately followed by another titled: The Decline of Parapsychology, or Whatever Happened to Parapsychology?

George Hansen worked for three years at the Rhine Research Center in Durham, North Carolina, and for five at Psychophysical Research Laboratories in Princeton, New Jersey. He is also the author of The Trickster and the Parnormal.

Coincidentally, I’ve been meaning to post a link to Carlos Alvarado’s blog post, Distortions of Parapsychological History: I. It will be interesting to see if there is any overlap or disagreement.

And, I’ve also been meaning to post Dean Radin’s excellent collection of links titled, Selected Peer-Reviewed Journal Publications on Psi Research.
