Dana Richards has edited a marvelous new book on the correspondence between Martin Gardner and Marcello Truzzi
was a sociologist of science, and Martin Gardner was a philosopher of science, says Richards.
But as Marcello Truzzi
stated, "extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof." Keep in mind that many of the proven technologies mentioned earlier were developed by NASA in the 1970s to heat test the re-entry of space vehicles.
Part IV, "Overviews and Reflections on Psi," comprises four papers: Marcello Truzzi
's identification of the unfair tactics of some critics of parapsychological research; a survey of quantum physical theories of psi by physicist Jean Burns; Paul Stevens' review of theories of psi; and Serena Roney-Dougal's reflections on how our society would change if only mainstream scientists would accept the existence of psi.
Professor Marcello Truzzi
, a sociologist at Eastern Michigan University (Ypsilanti) passed away this past February.
, associate member of the Parapsychological Association, died of cancer on February 2, 2003.
is a social scientist and claims, disingenuously in my opinion, to be neutral on many (if not most) of these claims.
The authors would like to thank Eddie Dawes and Marcello Truzzi
