The Roots of Coincidence: An Excursion into Parapsychology
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.
Synchronicity: An Acausal Connecting Principle. (From Vol. 8. of the Collected Works of C. G. Jung) (Jung Extracts)
Jung was intrigued from early in his career with coincidences, especially those surprising juxtapositions that scientific rationality could not adequately explain. He discussed these ideas with Albert Einstein before World War I, but first used the term "synchronicity" in a 1930 lecture, in reference to the unusual psychological insights generated from consulting the I Ching. A long correspondence and friendship with the Nobel Prize-winning physicist Wolfgang Pauli stimulated a final, mature statement of Jung's thinking on synchronicity, originally published in 1952 and reproduced here. Together with a wealth of historical and contemporary material, this essay describes an astrological experiment Jung conducted to test his theory. Synchronicity reveals the full extent of Jung's research into a wide range of psychic phenomena.
This paperback edition of Jung's classic work includes a new foreword by Sonu Shamdasani, Philemon Professor of Jung History at University College London.

The Roots of Coincidence. With a postscript by Renee Haynes.
In this volume, Koestler discusses various attempts to achieve a synthesis between the exact science of physics and man's intuitive intimations of deeper levels of reality--from the Renaissance philosopher Pico della Mirandola to Schopenhauer, Kammerer and Jung. The book ends with the author's own speculative contribution to this quest, and a plea for an open-minded approach, avoiding the opposite dangers of rigid materialism and superstitious credulity. From the dust cover.
