Description

A discussion about what constitutes coincidence. Is it 'normal' that an occurence should happen more often statistics predict? What forces cause one to believe that a chance meeting is coincidence and not fate? The author takes great pains to show that learned, prestigious persons (e.g., Jung, Rhine, Kammerer, Eddington) have been delving into this research for centuries, often at great personal cost to their careers or images.
