Overview

What's So Dangerous?
Dangerous Pursuits is a wry allusion to philosopher Stephen Braude's obstacle-strewn career path over the past several decades—to the vindictive hostility, ridicule, and condescension he's encountered for his decision to look carefully at the data and theoretical issues of parapsychology. The diverse chapters, which are incisive but not without humor, focus on the topic of mediumship, and in the process address major parapsychological themes, including the evidence for postmortem survival and the unsettling question of the limits of paranormal influence. In the end, it turns out the real danger is the widespread ignorance of how these issues impact our understanding of reality.
