New book (partly) on paranormal belief psychology

Posted on January 25, 2007


Oxford University Press has just come out with a new book on “common myths about the mind and brain”. Tall Tales about the Mind and Brain covers, among other things, beliefs about the paranormal – which is what makes it interesting for me. The book is actually connected to my visit to the APRU at Goldsmiths as two of the chapters were co-written by Chris French, who runs that research unit. I’ll probably pick up a copy while in the UK and will have more to say about it once I’ve read it, but it sounds like a fun introduction to the area.
