Journal’s Paper on ESP Expected to Prompt Outrage
By BENEDICT CAREY



One of psychology’s most respected journals has agreed to publish a paper presenting what its author describes as strong evidence for extrasensory perception, the ability to sense future events.


The decision may delight believers in so-called paranormal events, but it is already mortifying scientists. Advance copies of the paper, to be published this year in The Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, have circulated widely among psychological researchers in recent weeks and have generated a mixture of amusement and scorn.

When asked for their comments on how badly some of their peers had reacted, the researchers replied, "We knew they'd say that."
