ALTERNATIVE SCIENCE: Challenging the Myths of the Scientific Establishment, by Richard Milton
  $11.96  
Author's site
AMAZON BUY

AMAZON REVIEWS

An intelligent, in-depth look at the psychology which creates Scientific Censorship and 'taboo' fields of research and invention. This book is a treasure-trove of examples both historical and contemporary; it covers the Wright Brothers, Cold Fusion, parapsychology, Velikovski, N-rays, and touches on many, many others. There's something in modern science which needs serious repair, and Milton points out the source of the malfunction in no uncertain terms. Each chapter gives extensive references, so one may look up the original evidence. Large bibliography too.
1996 paperback pp264

THE CONSCIOUS UNIVERSE: Scientific Truth of Psychic Phenomena
by Dr. Dean Radin
 $17.50 
Author's Site
AMAZON BUY

AMAZON REVIEWS

Here finally is a book which takes a proper scientific attitude regarding Parapsychology. Not, "it's impossible, thereford any positive evidence is in error", but rather: "here are the results of current professional research, here are the skeptical arguments." It's an excellent update on the current state of PSI research, on past and present skeptical objections, and on the psychology of researchers and skeptics. But be warned, the conclusion here is that PSI effects are real.
1987 hardcover 1st edition pp384

SCIENTIFIC LITERACY AND THE MYTH OF THE SCIENTIFIC METHOD by Dr. H. H. Bauer
 $11.16 
Author's site
AMAZON BUY

AMAZON REVIEWS

Suspect something's wrong with conventional science? Then don't miss this book! Dr. Bauer (Chemistry, VPI/VSU) hits the bullseye on myths believed by the public and by scientists themselves. You'll want to buy two, leaving one copy free to push on your science-worshipping friends. In Bauer's world the "Filter," rather than Scientific method, rules all.
"Science begins by chance and caprice, at the frontier, with hardly a shadow of the scientific method in evidence; and then it proceeds to be sieved, tested, and modified until it appears in the textbooks, whose tried and refined content can be explained so simply (albiet fallaciously) as resulting from application of the [scientific] method."
Chapter titles: Scientific Literacy, The So-called Scientific Method, How Science Really Works, Other Fables About Science, Imperfections of the Filter, Consequences of Misconception, In Praise of Science.
1994 paperback pp180

SEVEN EXPERIMENTS THAT COULD CHANGE THE WORLD, by Rupert Sheldrake
 $11.20 
Author's site
AMAZON BUY

AMAZON REVIEWS

Why not *continuously measure* some physical constants, rather than assuming they are constant? What if scientists' expectations have applied a serious bias to basic physics experiments? Are amputee's "phantom limbs" real? ... This book is excellent, with disturbing reevaluation of the fundamental assumptions behind modern science, and a hard clear look at both the myths of mainstream science and at the way science is REALLY done.
