Abstract

The authors place extrasensory perception (ESP) in the field of psychology, using as a basis the possibility that ESP, like thought itself, is an emergent quality of brain tissue. While they describe the unscientific atmosphere surrounding these phenomena, they plead for an open mind toward ESP, citing its appearance throughout history and comparing the difficulty of measuring it with the difficulty of measuring psychological phenomena.
