The Truth Is out There
Carlson, Scott
Chronicle of Higher Education, v54 n18 pB11 Jan 2008
Stephen E. Braude is one of the few mainstream academics applying his intellectual training to questions that many would regard at best as impossible to answer, and at worst absolutely ridiculous: Do psychic phenomena exist? Are mediums and ghosts real? Can people move objects with their minds or predict the future? A professor of philosophy at the University of Maryland-Baltimore County, Braude is a past president of the Parapsychological Association, an organization that gathers academics and others interested in phenomena like extra-sensory perception (ESP) and psychokinesis, and he has published a series of books with well-known academic presses on such topics. In this article, the author describes the life and works of Braude. The author also describes how Braude embraced the study of paranormal after experiencing it with his friends.
