Anomalistic Psychology

Plusieurs universitaires anglo-saxons viennent de faire paraître un livre d’introduction à la "psychologie anomalistique", l’étude psychologique des croyances paranormales et des expériences exceptionnelles. Ce livre concis, publié dans une collection de manuel allégé à destination des étudiants, est un excellent moyen de découvrir cette spécialité de la psychologie bien intégrée au système académique anglo-saxon.
