Groundbreaking, yet playful, Psychic Intuition: Everything You Ever Wanted to Ask but Were Afraid to Know by Nancy du Tertre examines psychic ability and the concept that such instincts and intuitions are natural and trainable abilities. This powerful work of nonfiction forgoes spiritual and mystical theories to explain psychic abilities through modern science, linguistics, psychology, logic, neuroscience, and anecdotal evidence. Known as "The Skeptical Psychic," du Tertre pens twenty engaging chapters like "Why Skeptics Lack Psychic Ability (Or, Hidden Prejudices in Logical Assumptions)," "Multi-Modal Sensing (Or, The Taste of Purple, Perfumed Music and Blue Wednesdays)," and "The Misunderstood Imagination (Or, The Biggest Human Sensory Organ)." She is convincing in her presentation because, as an attorney, she relies on her own skeptical nature and desire for evidence to explain psychic ability. Du Tertre's approach to understanding psychic ability is influenced by the notion, first begun with the Romantic Science movement in 19th century Europe, that the role and impact of the observer is essential in observing any phenomenon. She writes in a unique style that combines scientific analysis with personal experience. She cites the works of modern scientists influenced by this movement, including American neuroscientist Dr. Oliver Sacks, Russian neuropsychiatrist Dr. Alexander Luria, and German physicist Werner Heisenberg, when asking her readers to reconsider their assumptions about the natural world, the power of imagination, and the limitations of the human brain. Her mission is to help readers understand their innate psychic abilities by retraining their thought processes so they can recognize the amazing potential of the human brain to tap into unseen, unpredictable and remote events from all corners of the universe.
