Publisher Description

Engaging the Anomalous is a collection of essays written by Jack Hunter between 2010-17. Together, the essays push toward the development of a non-reductive, participatory and experiential anthropology of the paranormal. Over the course of the book, Hunter surveys: 


• Trends in anthropology's engagement with the paranormal 

• The anthropology and neuroscience of spirit possession 

• The history of Spiritualism and the phenomena of physical mediumship

• The overlaps between mediumistic practices and other mind-body phenomena


Hunter also poses serious questions about consciousness, experience, spirits, mediumship, psi, the nature of reality, and how best to investigate and understand them. In addition, the book features a selection of illuminating interviews with the author, as well as an original Foreword by leading parapsychologist and trickster theorist George P. Hansen. Engaging the Anomalous is a bold contribution to Anomalistic literature.
