Chris French - The Science Of Weird Shit

Renowned British psychologist Chris French is set to release a new book that challenges us to examine the world of paranormal beliefs and experiences through a scientific lens. Known for his skeptical approach to the unexplained, Chris is widely recognised for his pioneering work in anomalistic psychology โ€“ the study of human behaviours and experiences often termed as paranormal.

'The Science Of Weird Shit: Why Our Minds Conjure The Paranormal' is available to pre-order now and will be officially released on February 6, 2024. It promises an enlightening exploration of the seemingly inexplicable. Chris endeavours to discern what truly lies behind our most bizarre experiences, from ghostly encounters and alien abductions to reincarnation and UFO sightings.

A professor of psychology at Goldsmiths, University of London, Chris has dedicated his career to scrutinising paranormal claims from an empirical perspective. His rigorous approach to the field has not only advanced our understanding of these unusual phenomena but has also provided valuable insights into the intricate workings of the human mind.

His expertise has found its way into many paranormal reality shows of the small screen, and recently provided a voice of skepticism in Steve Higgins' debut ghost hunting documentary 'My Ghost Hunting Movie'. Chris also regularly offers some balance to Danny Robins' exploration of the paranormal in the hugely popular podcast series, 'Uncanny'.

In his upcoming book, Chris leverages his wealth of experience and knowledge to examine and debunk some of the most popular paranormal phenomena such as ESP, communication with the dead, and alien abduction claims. Yet, he does so with a sense of respect, highlighting the importance of these beliefs and the crucial role they play in our understanding of the human psyche.

'The Science Of Weird Shit' promises to be much more than a book about debunking paranormal claims. It is also promotes the wider, urgent needed for critical thinking in other aspects of modern society, where the line between fact and fiction is often blurred. Chris invites readers to embark on this intellectual journey, using scientific principles to unravel the mysteries that surround us.

This fascinating book promises to be an engaging and gratifying read, undoubtedly imbued with the author's trademark wit, light-bulb moments, and a healthy dose of levity. It underscores the significance of understanding our paranormal beliefs โ€“ not to ridicule them but to gain deeper insights into the capabilities and complexities of our minds.

With a foreword by the equally brilliant Richard Wiseman, brace yourself for a thrilling exploration of the paranormal, guided by one of the world's leading authorities in anomalistic psychology. 'The Science Of Weird Shit' is sure to be a captivating read that you won't soon forget. Pre-order your copy from Amazon now.
