InPresence host, Jeffrey Mishlove, PhD, is author of The Roots of Consciousness, Psi Development Systems, and The PK Man. Between 1986 and 2002 he hosted and co-produced the original Thinking Allowed public television series. He is the recipient of the only doctoral diploma in “parapsychology” ever awarded by an accredited university (University of California, Berkeley, 1980). For many years he served as president of the non-profit Intuition Network, an organization dedicated to creating a world in which all people were supported and encouraged in developing inner intuitive abilities.

Here he reviews different approaches to knowledge and inquiry. He notes that parapsychology is a holistic discipline that incorporates several different approaches — including experimental science. He highlight the history of psychical research and parapsychology, including the work of J.B. Rhine at Duke University. He emphasizes the importance of the 1969 decision by the Council of the American Association for the Advancement of Science to recognize the Parapsychological Association as an affiliate organization.
