Pseudoscience and Deception : The Smoke and Mirrors of Paranormal Claims Paperback / softback
Edited by Bryan Farha
Pseudoscience and Deception is a compilation of some of the most eye-opening skeptical articles pertaining to extraordinary claims and pseudoscience.
The articles explore paranormal, extraordinary, or fringe-science claims and reveal logical explanations or outline the deceptive tactics involved in convincing the vulnerable.
Topics include claims of astrology, psychic ability, alternative medicine, after-death communication, psychotherapy, and pseudoscience.
The contributors to this book are among the most accomplished critical thinkers, scientists, and educators in the world and tackle their respective topics from a rational, logical, and skeptical perspective.
Most students are seldom excited to study "critical thinking"-with the exception of allegedly paranormal phenomena as the subject matter.
Educators must seize this golden opportunity to witness and experience students' genuine engagement in studying critical thinking.
