Apparitions Author:G.N.M. Tyrrell The classic study of Extra-Sensory Perception (ESP) in relation to ghostly appearances. — . . . an absorbing and authoritative exploration of a subject long obscured by superstition and fear - the sensory hallucination, or apparition. The author, past president of England's famed Society for Psychical Research, offer logical, impartial explanatio... more »ns for phenomena too often dismissed as "supernatural." He dmonstrates effectively that scientific investigation of apparitions can make a big contribution to our understanding of the human mind and personality.
Basing his theories on a vast collection of psychical data, Mr. Tyrrell suggests that "ghosts" are subjective and telepathic, created in regions of the personality outside the field of normal consciousness. He illustrates this argument with over sixty dramatic, well-documented case histories, establishing a clear relationship between such phenomenoa and mdern psychology.
