Description:

Essayist Janet McDonald reports that pyschics are frauds, while another essaysist emphatically states the opposite. Across four chapters, essays are arranged in a pro versus con format, allowing topics about paranormal phenomena to be entertainingly debated. Readers will evaluate why people believe in paranormal phenomena, whether it really exists, whether the mind and the body are separate entities, and whether the government should support the paranormal. Related topics include brain structure, ghosts, near-death experiences, mediums, and the biology of hope.
