Parapsychology: Predicting the Future

Professor Richard Wiseman on the future of parapsychology research


For over sixty years, parapsychologists have been investigating the possible existence of psychic ability via laboratory-based experiments. But what have the results of these studies revealed, and will they ever help resolve the debate concerning ESP and PK? This talk will review the problems to date, and then focus on strategies designed to enhance future progress, including the need for pre-registration of experiments and analyses, a possible moratorium on certain types of research, and an increased reliance on skeptic-proponent collaboration.

Psychologist Professor Richard Wiseman currently holds Britain¹s only Professorship in the Public Understanding of Psychology at the University of Hertfordshire. He frequently appears on the media, and has written over 60 academic articles and several books, including The Luck Factor (2003) and Quirkology (2007). Much of his research has examined the possible existence of psychic ability.
