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 the history of the humanistic and transpersonal movements in psychology. He notes that there is a marked difference between the Association for Humanistic Psychology and the American Humanist Association, the organization that gave birth to the association of “scoffers” known as the Committee for the Scientific Investigation of the Claims of the Paranormal (CSICOP). He also highlights the conflict between the transpersonal movement and the thinking of the great existential psychologist, Rollo May.
