Debunked! : ESP, telekinesis, and other pseudoscience by Georges Charpak( Book )

7 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 891 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the most scientifically advanced period in human history, belief in the paranormal and the supernatural is alarmingly common. Nobel Prize winner Georges Charpak and physics professor Henri Broch team up to show you the tricks of the trade and sleight of hand that keep astrologers, TV psychics, and spoon benders in business. Using only the simplest of science, the authors explore the effectiveness of horoscopes--the blander the better--and why, with a television audience in the millions, any strange, unlikely prediction is almost certain to come true. Not merely an exposé of magic tricks, this book demonstrates how pseudoscientists use science, statistics, and psychology to bamboozle an audience--sometimes for fun, sometimes for profit. Entertaining and enlightening, Debunked! is the antidote, vigorously asserting the virtues of doubt, skepticism, curiosity, and scientific knowledge.--Publisher information
Exposed! : ouija, firewalking, and other gibberish by Henri Broch( Book )

11 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in 3 languages and held by 286 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From horoscopes to telekinesis to the Shroud of Turin, much of what is popularly accepted as a mystical or paranormal phenomenon is, in fact, bunk. Henri Broch's charged deconstruction of these and other acts reveals the hucksterism of pseudoscience." "Broch provides a scientific explanation for what many accept as supernatural or psychic. He explains how some tricks, such as bending silverware with the mind, actually work. He details plausible, scientifically grounded alternative explanations for others, such as dowsing, which is the practice of finding by nonscientific means hidden veins of water, gems, metals, and other materials under the earth. Broch's hands-on experiments demystify the mysterious and explain the inexplicable."--Jacket

Au coeur de l'extra-ordinaire by Henri Broch( Book )

13 editions published between 1991 and 2015 in French and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Fruit du travail d'une trentaine d'années sur tout ce qui touche au paranormal, à l'occulte ou au mystérieux, cet ouvrage - absolument sans équivalent - présente les résultats de l'enquête scientifique la plus complète qui ait jamais été faite sur l'ensemble des phénomènes "paranormaux". Le Zodiaque et l'astrologie, l'électricité dans l'Antiquité et l'ordinateur préhistorique de Stonehenge, les mégalithes, les pyramides et les extraterrestres, l'iridologie et l'acupuncture, l'homéopathie et la "mémoire de l'eau, ' le spiritisme et la radiesthésie, la perception extra-sensorielle et la parapsychologie, la marche sur le feu et ... la marche sur les eaux, les colombes de Fatima et le miracle de Lourdes du Dr. Carrel, les voix du Saint Esprit et les secrets des temples antiques ... la thèse de doctorat d'Elizabeth Tessier et tant d'autres choses encore. Rien n'échappe aux investigations et à l'esprit critique de l'auteur et nous découvrons ainsi - preuves à l'appui - la réalité, les explications et les "recettes"de tous ces mystères. Dans cette quête de la vérité, cet ouvrage brise beaucoup de tabous, bouscule les convictions toutes faites, les croyances et dogmes un peu vite établis et pose de nombreuses questions; il ne laisse personne indifférent et provoque de vives réactions. La Zététique dans toute sa puissance!

The roving mind by Isaac Asimov( Book )

1 edition published in 1990 in French and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Isaac Asimov's death on April 6, 1992, was a great loss to literature, science, and freethought. The vision of one of America's most prolific authors is unmatched today, and his pointed honesty shines through in this fascinating collection of essays, now reissued in this special tribute edition. Asimov demonstrates his extraordinary skill at disseminating knowledge from across the spectrum of scientific disciplines as his "roving mind" ranges from the polemical to the persuasive, from the speculative to the realistic. The sixty-two essays in this volume include such subjects as creationism, the distinction between real science and pseudoscience, censorship, the population explosion, technophobia, the social consequences of technological progress, cloning, the possibility of contacting extraterrestrial life, and the wonders of the cosmos. There are also thoughts on his style of writing, stories about his personal life, and recollections of family history - all written in the clear and elegant prose for which Asimov was noted
