The literature of parapsychology is massive and very uneven in quality. Much the best of it is to be found in periodicals, and there is at present no bibliography of the periodical literature in the field. I have especially tried to locate periodical articles relevant to the philosophy of parapsychology, and to be reasonably selective as to the quality and seriousness of the materials included below. In order better to serve the needs of scholars, I have given analytical entries for the contents of the major anthologies dealing with philosophical issues in parapsychology. Works not included in the bibliography to James M. O. Wheatley and Hoyt L. Edge [editors], Philosophical Dimensions of Parapsychology are particularly stressed here. My bibliography is by no means exhaustive of the serious literature; in particular, no attempt has been made to survey the literature in languages other than English.
The best general guide to books in the field of parapsychology is Rhea A. White and Laura A. Dale, Parapsychology: Sources of Information ( Metuchen, New Jersey: The Scarecrow Press, 1973), which ought to be consulted with regard to non-philosophical works. George Zorab, Bibliography of Parapsychology ( New York: Parapsychology Foundation, 1957) includes Continental literature and some periodical articles, but it is sparse in its coverage and has for most purposes been superseded by
