Abstract: 'I thiink there can be no doubt tht if telepathy could be demonstrated experimentally in such a way that the results wouold be fully accepted by the scientific world--in fact to become a part of true science--then it must have profound philosophical consequences. Not only would it influence the course of academic philosophy, but it would, I believe, have a considerable impact upon thought in the fields of both religion and science. I venture to think that it would have in this century an effect similar in magnitude to that which the acceptance of evolution theory had in the last.' --Introduction
