Oesterreich’s classic study Occultism and Modern Science is republished with digital corrections and professional presentation

OCCULTISM AND MODERN SCIENCE:  Traugott Konstantin Oesterreich (1880-1949) was a German professor of philosophy and an expert on the philosophy and psychology of religion. He taught as a professor at Tübingen University. He is considered to be one of the first modern German scientists to declare his belief in psychic phenomena. Although his views on parapsychology evolved over the years, ranging from an outspoken skepticism to an acceptance of the paranormal, he continued to conduct scientific research and publish in academic journals. His 1921 book on psychic possession and obsession later influenced the author of The Exorcist.  And in Occultism and Modern Science, also first published in German in 1921 (then translated to English in 1923), Oesterreich presented case studies of psychic phenomena and studied with scientific methods the possibility of such a reality—or surreality.

The new Quid Pro edition of this work is a Digitally Remastered Book™—a correct reproduction of the classic English edition from 1923. This process removes underlines, stray marks, and printer artifacts typically found in such reprints, and completes missing letters and words. It provides a cleaner, complete, and more professional presentation of this much-discussed book.
