Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Do witches have the power to influence events? Can psychic mediums communicate with the dead? Are UFOs from other planets? These and other questions come under scrutiny in the "Fact or Fiction? series. These anthologies expose the occult, the paranormal, and the mysterious to the light of critical thinking. In each volume, experts, scholars, and enthusiasts present arguments for and against the existence of a mysterious phenomenon, event, or legend. A general introduction orients the reader to the topic, and an in-depth epilogue gives readers tools with which to analyze the articles by applying the methods of hypothetical reasoning. Readers will be challenged not only to reevaluate their own preconceived notions, but also to rigorously apply critical thinking skills to the arguments for and against these phenomena. Its many features combine to make "Fact or Fiction? an ideal tool for debate and critical thinking on some of the world's most intriguing topics.

Synopsis:

The ability of a human being to transform into the figure of the werewolf has long been considered a superstition. However, eyewitness sightings of these remarkable creatures have been documented throughout history all over the world. Serious research in the fields of medicine, psychiatry, history, folklore, and magic explores the close bonds humans share with animals and their behaviors. In an attempt to answer the age-old mystery of man's ability to transform into a beast, this text presents a collection of these writings that provide compelling reasons for studying the mystery more closely to determine if werewolves are indeed a fact or a fiction.
