occult and metaphysical traditions had not yet gained currency Rhine still
referred to this nexus as "the occult fringe." Consider, for example, a brief
passage that reveals many similarities with the discourse of the skeptics: "Just as
in medicine, for instance, proper research has given us 'modern miracles' in

Others come from more orthodox religious traditions, readily linking
parapsychology with its heterodox metaphysical precursors (e.g., Lin- day 1972;
Logan 1988). Both views are fed by the present-day linkages that the

with parapsychology. The findings of psychical research and parapsychology are
frequently cited in support of various beliefs and practices of these traditions, and

In light of this, one must wonder if scientific boundary-work (like that described by
Gieryn) would have helped to shift parapsychology more toward the scientific
forum and to distinguish it from the New Age, the “occult wave,” and the mass-
media.68 Parapsychology has often been labeled a pseudoscience, but in the
1960s and 1970s, it had strong enough institutional foundations in Germany and
other countries (USA, Netherlands, Soviet Union) that it was able to practice its

concerning latent human potential—the development of allegedly “natural”
psychic abilities; ...
