The Fall 2011 issue of the Journal of Scientific Exploration has brought us a wonderful review of Esprit: Men and Women of Parapsychology, Personal Reflections: Volume 1, edited by Rosemarie Pilkington. In it, Sally Rhine Feather, Executive Director of the Rhine Research Center, writes: “Esprit is a rich biographical resource for historians of the field, but it really is much more. It is the human story behind the scientific reports. It provides an insightful glimpse into what motivated a diverse group of gifted men and women to devote a large part of their lives to the exploration of an elusive and controversial dimension of human consciousness, and with little concern for monetary or societal reward…Esprit offers valuable guidance to the novice, some new “discoveries” of unfinished work and speculations for the more experienced parapsychologist, and possible fodder for the skeptic who just wonders about the makeup of a parapsychologist. But regardless of one’s belief about psi, this collection of essays provides priceless vignettes of a band of dedicated and selfless pioneers.”
