History of Ideas About The Paranormal with Terje Simonsen

Terje Simonsen, PhD, is the author of Our Secret Powers — Telepathy, Clairvoyance, Precognition — A Short History of (Nearly) Everything Paranormal. He is a philosopher and historian of ideas.

Here he reflects on ideas about the paranormal going back to ancient times. Topics include shamanism, Hermeticism, idealism, naturalism, materialism, and skepticism. He notes that, while there is nearly 150 years of scientific research in parapsychology, the field is still marginalized within academia. He also discusses the responses to the paranormal within the field of theoretical physics. He focuses on the practical applications of psi, and on the personal meaning of psi abilities.

New Thinking Allowed host, Jeffrey Mishlove, PhD, is author of The Roots of Consciousness, Psi Development Systems, and The PK Man. Between 1986 and 2002 he hosted and co-produced the original Thinking Allowed public television series. He is also past-president of the non-profit Intuition Network, an organization dedicated to creating a world in which all people are encouraged to cultivate and apply their inner, intuitive abilities. He holds a doctoral diploma in “parapsychology” from the University of California, Berkeley.
