The Adventures of a Parapsychologist

Blackmore, Susan

 Susan Blackmore became interested in parapsychology before entering Oxford University and persisted in that interest while at college, receiving one of England's first doctorates for work in parapsychology. However, as she became involved in research and discovered that she was not what is known in parapsychology as a psi-conducive experimenter, her early enthusiasm waned and was gradually replaced by skepticism. Today she is a voluble exponent of the view that there is as great a need as ever to study the experiences people have that have been identified as paranormal or parapsychological—but with no need to involve psi. Blackmore feels that psychology is the answer to parapsychology. This informally frank and intimate autobiography tells how she came to this position. She still considers herself a parapsychologist, yet her book was published by Prometheus Books, a publisher that specializes in books debunking parapsychology and various pseudosciences.
