Paranormal Ruptures: Critical Approaches to Exceptional Experiences by Jacob W. Glazier, PhD
From the Publisher:
“The paranormal is more than just scary. It threatens our normal perceptions of reality and cuts to the core of human experience. This book and each individual chapter, in its own unique way, make this case by bringing together scientific research and scholarship from cultural and critical studies. Indeed, if the paranormal terrifies you even a little bit, imagine the impact on society if some of these exceptional experiences turn out to be true. Truth, as we will see, is often times stranger than fiction and is not so easily assured in our modern world of advancing technology and social change. Often relegated to myths or tall tales, the paranormal is rather already here among us, summoning and sometimes bedeviling us to reconsider our usual ways of understanding. This book is an invitation to just such a journey.”
