This story comes from one of the better blogs about parapsychology. Instead of simply accepting the claims of parapsychology, Dr. Alvarado tries to apply a critical, scientific method. Whether or not this approach is always suitable for the subtle dynamics of parapsychology is another issue. What matters is that we use the mind and lived experience to analyze parapsychological truth claims and not fall into sheer hucksterism. So even if we can’t always be “scientific” as currently understood, we still can approach parapsychology with a scientific attitude.
