Psychics, paranormal activity, precognition – psychologist and
sceptic Chris French, of Goldsmiths, University of London, has
spent his career subjecting paranormal claims to scientific
scrutiny. He talks to the Wellcome Trust's Daniel
Glaser about the powerful psychological factors that
may explain why people continue to passionately believe in
supernatural forces, which can be traced back to the
beginnings of human evolutionary history.
This packed lunch event was recorded live
on 19 October 2011 at Wellcome Collection.
