Winner—Parapsychological Association Book Award "A high-level book...sufficiently detailed to permit readers with or without previous knowledge of parapsychology to evaluate the conclusions drawn by the authors. An excellent, comprehensive scholarly-level source of information about a long-contested area of research in psychology and related disciplines."--PsycCritiques "Indispensable.--Magonia "The evidence is impressive...substantial."--The Los Angeles Review of Books "An excellent summary of the latest advances in parapsychological research that updates developments in the decades of the nineties and the last fifteen years of this century...the work has been awarded the First Prize for the best book of parapsychology."--Instituto de Psicología Paranormal Many people have experienced such unusual phenomena as dreams that later seem to correspond with unforeseeable events, thinking of a long-lost friend just before he or she unexpectedly calls, or the ability to "feel" the presence of deceased loved ones. What many do not realize is that these types of experiences have been researched for more than a century by eminent scientists, including Nobel laureates. Most of these researchers have concluded that some of these phenomena do occur, although we are far from explaining them to everyone's satisfaction. This book is the first in almost 40 years to provide a comprehensive scientific overview of research in the field of parapsychology, explaining what we know and don't know about so-called psi phenomena, such as "telepathy," "precognition" or "psychokinesis." Contributors evaluate the evidence for these phenomena, accounting for factors such as selective memory, wish fulfillment and incorrect methods or analyses, in some cases offering psychological, physical and biological theories.

This volume, first published in 2000, is about the development of human thinking that stretches beyond the ordinary boundaries of reality. Various research initiatives emerged in the decade prior to publication exploring such matters as children's thinking about imaginary beings, magic and the supernatural. The purpose of this book is to capture something of the larger spirit of these efforts. In many ways, this new work offers a counterpoint to research on the development of children's domain-specific knowledge about the ordinary nature of things that has suggested that children become increasingly scientific and rational over the course of development. In acquiring an intuitive understanding of the physical, biological or psychological domains, even young children recognize that there are constraints on what can happen. However, once such constraints are acknowledged, children are in a position to think about the violation of those very same constraints - to contemplate the impossible.

Grounded in both scientific acumen and constructive inquiry, this anthology shines a rare, clarifying light on the controversial realms of psychical and paranormal research, surveying reports, essays, and arguments from more than a century of investigation into matters such as clairvoyance, telepathy, and past-life regression. In the past one hundred and twenty-five years-despite a relative paucity of funding and the troubling persistence of fraud-serious inquiry into the paranormal, particularly as it relates to clairvoyance and psychical perception, has successfully entered the scientific age. Studies in the modern laboratory, employing rigorous methodology and peer-reviewed oversight, have conclusively detected statistical anomalies that suggest the presence of some not yet understood faculty of the human mind. In The Parapsychology Revolution, Robert M. Schoch, Ph.D.-a scholar widely known for his geological theories that question the conventional dating of the Great Sphinx-and researcher Logan Yonavjak introduce and anthologize core writings that underscore the range and continuing challenges of psychical research. The book's extensive introduction and the editors' commentary on individual essays and sections highlight milestones, feuds, and key players that mark the nascent history of this fascinating and important field of research. Finally, The Parapsychology Revolution addresses and clarifies the all-important question: Is there legitimate evidence for a world beyond the ordinary?

That unexpected thud in the middle of the night, that lone blinking light, the sudden hiss in the eerie quiet, when goosebumps spike and a chill runs down your spine … is the fear unnecessary or should we be scared … very, very scared? Spirits, hauntings, ghosts, demons—some believe in them, some don’t. Some have even experienced them, some have safeguarded themselves with science. But whichever category you may fall into, one thing is certain—none of us fully understand the concept. Shishir Kumar, founder president and lead investigator of Team Pentacle, India’s most sought-after paranormal research organization, brings to you a handbook with the key to sense, recognize, grasp and accept the unknown. Using a blended approach of scientific methods and religious beliefs, this book explains the true nature of spirits and types of sightings. Departing from the tradition of myths and chants, this book intelligently humanizes the concept and arms the reader with the requisite knowledge to unravel sounds and shadows which seem to have no source. It utilizes New Age tools like Electronic Voice Phenomena and digital cameras for identifying and resolving spirit possessions and familiar sources like Ouija boards for communicating with them. The author provides a comprehensive, engaging and easy-to-follow guidebook for quenching those chills we are all too familiar with but so far have been unequipped to deal with. The book bridges the gap between the human and the ethereal which helps in driving out the fear, and brings into focus the need to act confidently and fearlessly. So, spooked or stoked, let’s unravel the mystery!

The Handbook of Religion and Health has become the seminal research text on religion, spirituality, and health, outlining a rational argument for the connection between religion and health. The Second Edition completely revises and updates the first edition. Its authors are physicians: a psychiatrist and geriatrician, a primary care physician, and a professor of nursing and specialist in mental health nursing. The Second Edition surveys the historical connections between religion and health and grapples with the distinction between the terms ''religion'' and ''spirituality'' in research and clinical practice. It reviews research on religion and mental health, as well as extensive research literature on the mind-body relationship, and develops a model to explain how religious involvement may impact physical health through the mind-body mechanisms. It also explores the direct relationships between religion and physical health, covering such topics as immune and endocrine function, heart disease, hypertension and stroke, neurological disorders, cancer, and infectious diseases; and examines the consequences of illness including chronic pain, disability, and quality of life. Finally, the Handbook reviews research methods and addresses applications to clinical practice. Theological perspectives are interwoven throughout the chapters. The Handbook is the most insightful and authoritative resource available to anyone who wants to understand the relationship between religion and health.
