Wissenschaftliche Gesellschaft zur
Förderung der Parapsychologie
The Wissenschaftliche Gesellschaft zur Förderung der
Parapsychologie (Scientific Society for the Advancement of
Parapsychology), founded in 1981 by Eberhard Bauer, Walter
von Lucadou, and German researchers interested in parapsychology,
sponsors and promotes research in universities and
similar research institutions. Psychical research had been
stamped out in Germany during the Nazi regime and faced a
difficult period of recovery after World War II. Several attempts
to found parapsychological associations have failed, but this society
succeeded in a unique way and through the 1980s was able
to secure a membership, among whom were a number of professors
in leading German schools. Last known address Abteilung
für Psychologie und Grenzgebiete der Psychologie, Albert-Ludwigs-Universität,
Freiburg i. Br., Belforrstrasse 16,
7800 Freiburg i. Br., Germany.
