Abstract:

"The experiments described in this monograph fall into several classes of investigations which are fairly closely related to each other, and which are believed to be of fundamental importance to Psychical Research. They are offered as some slight contribution to science, of interest particularly to those who are more or less technically familiar with Psychical Research; possibly their less technical portions may interest the layman. Herein will be found (1) a statistical method of experiment in Psychical Research which, it is believed, will be acceptable to science and will prove adequate for resolving doubt and controversy concerning the alleged supernormal acquisition of knowledge (telepathy, lucidity or clairvoyance, or communication from discarnate intelligences capable of apprehending facts in our world); and (2) the results of the first applications of this method"--Preface.
