Despite having a more comprehensive understanding of the world around us today than in previous centuries, when it comes to parapsychological experience, the debate rages on. Do such phenomena as telepathy, clairvoyance, precognition, and psychokinesis exist? Why is there still no consensus among experts in the field?

Despite ongoing and repeated attempts to prove or disprove the existence of parapsychological events, there are still conclusive findings - and certainly no consensus across the worldwide community of scholars, scientists, and proponents of psychic phenomena. Still, there is no shortage of information about this fascinating topic to allow everyone to draw their own conclusions.

This book has been expressly written to make each chapter and topic accessible to a general audience, despite containing a vast amount of theoretical material. The book is organized into four parts: in the first section, proponents of validity of parapsychological data and critics who reject that validity state their respective positions. In the second part, each group responds to the others' statements in the form of a debate. In the third and fourth sections, other experts from the United States as well as from Australia and Great Britain provide overviews and conclusions.
