Reality, or. . . ?

Arthur Ellison. The Reality of the ParanormaI. Harrap, 1988.

This book, by a former President of the SPR concentrates on spontaneous and field phenomena, rather than those of the laboratory. There are sections on a variety of topics, but few are developed fully. The usual psychic researchers gripes about 'materialist Western science' are paraded, and no concessions are made to the sceptical case - except where Ellison himself is the sceptic. The author's views are influenced by his Theosophist convictions, although very liberal ones.
  • Peter Rogerson, from Magonia 30, August 1988.
