James’s interest in psychical research was lifelong and profound. Right through the last years of his life as he was writing his great philosophical works, he kept on heroically with psychical research. The more than fifty articles, essays, and reviews in this volume, collected here for the first time, were published by William James over a span of some twenty-five years.

Hereward Carrington (17 October – 26 December ) was a well-known British investigator of psychic phenomena and author. His subjects included several of the most high-profile cases of apparent psychic ability of his times, and he wrote over books on subjects including the paranormal and psychical research, conjuring and stage magic, and alternative.

Price formed an organization in called the National Laboratory of Psychical Research as a rival to the Legal status: Non-profit organisation.
