I just started reading an interesting book about William James, a professor of psychology at Harvard University at the close of the nineteenth century and his search for scientific proof of life after death. Might have been the first, or least the most prominent, scientific investigator of ghostly phenomenon. The book jacket notes, "At the heart of the story is the ongoing tension between empiricism and spiritualism-between a way of explaining the world that is grounded in the purely tangible and a way that is grounded in a mixture of the evident and the hidden" (Blum). Very relevant to the work of the modern investigator searching for empirical evidence for the unknown.
