True science will not deny the existence of things because they cannot be weighed and measured.  It will rather lead us to believe that the wonders and subtleties of possible existence surpass all that our mental powers allow us clearly to perceive... We must ignore no existence whatever; we may variously interpret or explain its meanng and origin, but, if a phenomenon does exist, it demands some kind of explanation.  --The Principles of Science, William Stanley Jevons (1835-82)
First words

Book description
A look into the fascinating world of the unknown, unexplained and/or unexplanable, including occult practitioners, alchemists, devil worshipers, witches, superstitions, cults, rituals, voodoo, etc. The authors delve into the phenomena of famous hauntings, exorcisms and apparitions from the position of (at the time) modern psychology and parapsychology, and include examinations of the occult in literature and the theater with works by Edgar Allen Poe, Goethe, and H.G. Wells. They also take a look at the fictional characters of Frankenstein's monster, Dracula, and the Wolf Man. Many photographs, drawings, medieval woodcuts illustrate the points of the authors.
