Dennis Lee: Subject in Hell

Show Summary Details

Preview

This chapter discusses the testing of the psychokinetic ability of Dennis Lee in New York. Lee was able to produce impressive observable psychokinetic effects in informal settings, but when he went to New York, his previously confident attitude was thoroughly undermined by his sponsor Steve Baumann. The chapter also suggests that Lee's case highlights the psychological delicacy of even the most promising subjects, and the need for extreme care and sensitivity in dealing with them and in designing experimental protocols.
