Dutch journalist Piet Hein Hoebens
(1948 – 1984) held a unique position in the controversies
between proponents and skeptics of parapsychology. While he
described himself as a card-carrying skeptic with strong
„ecumenical“ leanings, even many of his opponents
appreciated his work and his open-minded criticisms.
Hoebens‘ constructive influence on the culture of
responsible scientific exchange is felt to this day.

The book presents more than 40 of Hoebens‘ writings added by
introductions to elucidate their original contexts and
lasting relevance. Thus the book provides valuable insights
into the history of parapsychology.
