Richard Wiseman

Just been listening to Richard Wiseman on the Little Atoms podcast. His approach is close to what I have in mind for the Dunne project (though he is avowedly a skeptic where I have decided to take a neutral stance): whether paranormal phenomena are true or not, what’s most interesting about them is what they can tell us about ourselves – for instance how the brain works, beliefs and behaviour.

For the Dunne project it’s going to be less a psychological study into what the belief in precognition can tell us about ourselves, more a look at the functions of storytelling about precognition in our lives.
