Sample text

Contemporary researchers wishing to study paranormal belief have access to a variety of self-report questionnaires addressing paranormal belief in general or a specific facet of paranormal belief. A selection of these tests may be found in the Appendices. Although none of these questionnaire measures is immune from criticism, some of the more recent tests have been subjected to comprehensive psychometric evaluation in an endeavour to ensure that they yield both reliable and valid indices. As will be evident in the following review, however, the construction of relatively sophisticated tests for research purposes was a slow and intermittent process.

CSICOP and other groups of sceptics employ showmanship and a range of rhetorical devices to ‘debunk’ paranormal beliefs in the eyes of the general public and thereby to discourage gullibility. More contentiously, sceptics also have ridiculed scientists who conduct research on the ontological reality and the nature of paranormal processes (Hansen, 1992). The extent of any influence of the sceptics’ movement on people’s paranormal belief and disbelief nevertheless does not appear to have been empirically assessed.

The following review of sociocultural factors reflects the fact that this topic is in many respects an unfortunate lacuna in the literature on paranormal belief. An appreciation of sociocultural influences on paranormal belief should take account of two fundamental social processes in the acquisition of beliefs. The previous chapter mentioned Sperber’s (1990) classification of beliefs in terms of their modes of formation. In one mode an unconscious ‘commonsensical’ inference is made about the nature of the world and the conscious (verbal) representation of this inference is informed by concepts and other relevant background acquired through social communication.
