Charles Honorton and the Impoverished State of Skepticism: Essays on a Parapsychological Pioneer
K. Ramakrishna Rao
McFarland & Company, 1994 - Body, Mind & Spirit - 229 pages
Charles Chuck Honorton (1946-1992) more than any other researcher brought the study of parapsychology to the attention of mainstream science. His relentless pursuit of replicable psi results led to the development of significant tests and strategies to conquer the elusiveness of parapsychological phenomena. In this work, twelve of his colleagues, themselves leaders in the field, describe, discuss and reflect on Honorton's work and significance to parapsychology. One of Honorton's final papers debunking the shallowness of the skeptical rejection of psi is also included, as well as a complete bibliography of his writings. The material was previously published in different form in the Journal of Parapsychology.
