      New World orioles (Icterus) include several closely related species and subspecies pairs that provide excellent opportunities for studying recent speciation. We examined a subspecies pair in the Orchard Oriole group: Orchard ...
    • Counting Persons and Living With Alters: Comments on Matthews 

      Braude, Stephen E. (Project Muse, 2003-12-29)
      I am pleased to see an increasing amount of attention being paid to the topic of responsibility in cases of Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID). But I question whether Matthews and others are taking matters in a helpful ...
    • Ian Stevenson: A Recollection and Tribute 

      Braude, Stephen E. (Society of Scientific Exploration, 2008)
      I had the pleasure of debating the issues concerning survival with Ian Stevenson over many years, both in person and in print. And there were quite a few issues on which we didn’t see eye to eye. But what made those ...
    • The Creativity of Dissociation 

      Braude, Stephen E. (Taylor & Francis, 2008-10-17)

    • Perspectival Awareness and Postmortem Survival 

      BRAUDE, STEPHEN E. (Society for Scientific Exploration, 2009)
      Critics of survival research often claim that the survival hypothesis is conceptually problematic at best, and literally incoherent at worst. The guiding intuition behind their skepticism is that there’s an essential link ...

    • The Mediumship of Carlos Mirabelli (1889–1951) 

      BRAUDE, STEPHEN E. (Society of Scientific Exploration, 2017)
      The case of the Brazilian medium Carlos Mirabelli is one of the most tantalizing and frustrating in psychical research. If his phenomena— especially his psychokinetic manifestations—occurred as reported, he was probably ...

      Hinkle, Caroline E.; Quiton, Raimi L. (Elsevier B.V., 2018-09-13)
      Optimism is associated with lower pain sensitivity, positive adjustment to chronic pain, and greater reduction of pain thresholds in a conditioned pain modulation (CPM) paradigm. We hypothesized that participants with ...
    • The Metaphysics of Recollection in Plato’s Meno 

      Schwab, Whitney (Walter de Gruyter Inc., Boston/Berlin, 2019-03-06)
      Recollection is central to the epistemology of Plato’s Meno. After all, the character Socrates claims that recollection is the process whereby embodied human souls bind down true opinions (doxai) and acquire knowledge ...

      Braude, Stephen (Routledge, 2019-06-29)
      Psychologists and psychiatrists have studied dissociative phenomena for a long time. However, they demonstrate surprisingly little agreement about what dissociation is and about which things exemplify it. Of course, ...
    • Expressivist Moral Abolitionism 

      Campbell, Eric (Taylor & Francis Online, 2020-09-22)
      Moral abolitionists argue that ordinary moral discourse has downsides substantial enough to warrant abandoning the discourse in favour of some replacement(s). Their most common critique is that the ‘realist’ character of ...
    • Book Review: Australian Poltergeist: The Stone-Throwing Spook of Humpty Doo and Many Other Cases 

      Healy, Tony; Cropper, Paul
      No doubt this breezily written and informative volume will fill a gaping lacuna in most JSE readers’ knowledge of evidence for psychokinesis generally and poltergeist phenomena in particular. It certainly did for me. Healy ...
