#197 - Scientific Parapsychology with Dean Radin
Dean Radin, PhD , is Senior Scientist at the Institute of Noetic Sciences (IONS) and has served as president of the American Parapsychological Association four times. A little over a year ago, he gave a presentation at Google, which can be found on YouTube, and it has become the most discussed talk of the 1,031 talks given there, as of this writing. His first career as a concert violinist shifted into science after earning a masters degree in electrical engineering and a PhD in psychology from the University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana. For a decade he worked on advanced telecommunications R&D at AT&T Bell Laboratories and GTE Laboratories; for over two decades he has been engaged in consciousness research. Before joining the research staff at IONS, he held appointments at Princeton University, University of Edinburgh, University of Nevada, and three Silicon Valley think-tanks, including SRI International, where he worked on a classified program investigating psychic phenomena for the US government. He is author or coauthor of over 200 technical and popular articles, a dozen book chapters, and several books including the bestselling The Conscious Universe (HarperOne, 1997) and Entangled Minds (Simon & Schuster, 2006). His technical articles have appeared in journals ranging from Foundations of Physics, to Psychological Bulletin, Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine, and Journal of Consciousness Studies. He has been interviewed for television shows ranging from Oprah and Larry King Live, to the BBC’s Horizon and PBS's Closer to Truth, and he has presented over a hundred invited lectures in venues including Harvard, Stanford and Princeton Universities, Google headquarters, and DARPA.
