"The momentous study here presented has what may be called, metaphorically, three dimensions. First, there is the unprecedented long period, about three years, during which experiments have been conducted until they reached a vast number. Secondly, we find that the co-operation, observation, and critical judgment of many persons both within and without the teaching staff of the psychological department of Duke University have been applied to the experiments at various stages. Thirdly, we note the waxing rigor of the main stream of the experimentation, and the diversity of methods employed not simply to pile up proof to astronomical proportions, but to isolate telepathy and clairvoyance, each from the other, to find out what measures enhanced and what detracted from results, and to acquire data to test this and that hypothesis of the processes involved. Many admirable series of experiments for extrasensory perception have been made by men of science and other men of university education and high mental endowment, especially since 1880, with some of earlier date. But in none of the particulars stated above can any of them compare with the great task accomplished at Duke University"--Introduction. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2008 APA, all rights reserved)

"This book is intended to afford a complete review of the recent research in extra-sensory perception (ESP), in the light of all of the criticisms that it has drawn. It is the purpose of the authors to include in this survey everything that is of importance to know in deciding whether ESP occurs, and what it is like if it does occur. It is their hope that the presentation will be clear enough to permit a view of the work in proper perspective, and yet technical enough to answer all the relevant questions as far as they have been answered by the results of experiments. The authors have attempted to condense: (a) all the experimental and evaluative methods by which the research has been done and by which its adequacy must be judged; (b) all of the results obtained--grouped, classified, and analyzed so as to enable them to be assayed critically from the point of view of all possible alternatives; (c) a thorough digest of the criticisms, both constructive and otherwise; and (d) all of these as they bear upon the clarified question about which the research is concerned, with as much of an answer to that question as the assembled material permits. In addition--and assuming that ESP occurs--there is given here a summary of all the established and partially established relations of ESP to better-known processes, indicating the relations between ESP and the individual, the relation of ESP to the conditions under which it is tested, indications of its place in the physical and mental worlds, as far as these are shown by the results. And last, for the student, the experimenter, and the forward-looking follower of these experiments, there is a sketch of the outstanding problems that still remain unsolved, the methods under contemplation by which they may possibly be solved, and the further needs and prospects which confront investigators now dealing with ESP and associated problems"--Preface.
