Book Description The University of Chicago Press. Paperback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, Authors of the Impossible: The Paranormal and the Sacred, Jeffrey J. Kripal, Most scholars dismiss research into the paranormal as pseudoscience, a frivolous pursuit for the paranoid or gullible. Even historians of religion, whose work naturally attends to events beyond the realm of empirical science, have shown scant interest in the subject. But the history of psychical phenomena, Jeffrey J. Kripal contends, is an untapped source of insight into the sacred, and by tracing that history through the last two centuries of Western thought we can see its potential centrality to the critical study of religion. The cultural history of telepathy, teleportation, and UFOs; a ghostly love story; the occult dimensions of science fiction; Cold War psychic espionage; galactic colonialism; and, the intimate relationship between consciousness and culture all come together in "Authors of the Impossible", a dazzling and profound look at how the paranormal bridges the sacred and the scientific.
