TheOuterEdge Classic Investigations of the Paranormal
TheOuterEdge Classic Investigations of the Paranormal Author:Joe Nickell, arry Karr and Tom Genoni This little book is an introduction to the important work of the Committee for the Scientific Investigation of Claims of the Paranormal (CSICOP). Since its creation in 1976-by philosopher Paul Kurtz, together with scientists and scholars like Carl Sagan, Sidney Hook, Stephen Jay Gould, Isaac Asimov and other concerned citizens- CSICOP has been ... more »at the forefront of the battle against superstition and pseudoscience.
One of its most effective instruments has been its journal, Skeptical Inquirer, from the pages of which we have selected these thirteen articles. We consider these "skeptical classics" because they are among the est and most memorable articles the magazine has published over the years.
In maing the final selection from a much larger number of equally excellent articles, we were governed ultimately by the criterion of introductory value to the new reader of the Skeptical Inquirer. We hope that these informative and interesting pieces will not only sere to acquaint the reader with the depth and breath of CSICOP's important mission, but that they will also inspire him or her to become an active participant in the investigative and educational work that lies ahead.
