Michael A. Thalbourne's glossary is the second edition of his unique work. Revised and expanded, the glossary contains terms covering psychic phenomena, research methods and theory in scientific parapsychology. The strength of this unique dictionary is that Thalbourne traces the words to their first uses, provides bibliographic reference for controversies over the concepts underlying many of the terms, and provides the etymological derivations for each term.
