The Hidden Power

Inglis, Brian

 In Part 1, Inglis presents a history of the evidence for psi and asks "Why, given that there has been so much evidence for psi in all ages, . . . has it not been accepted that there is a powerful case on its behalf, which ought not to be dismissed out of hand?" (p. 7). Next, he discusses and refutes the four most sensible counterhypotheses put forth by the skeptics. In a chapter on "The Significance of Psi Effects," he examines the question of How, when "the evidence against psi is so inadequate . . . can the pretense be maintained that the evidence for psi does not fulfill science's requirements?" (p. 143). In Part 3, he presents the case against scientism, or the creed scientists have adopted to legitimatize how they operate. He shows how unscientific scientism really is, and he closes with a chapter in which he points out how useful to science the study of psi could be.
