James Carpenter and First Sight Receive Award

Dr. James Carpenter was recently presented with the Charles Honorton Integrative Contributions Award by the Parapsychology Association at their annual conference.  This award may be given to a member of the association “who has made significant research contributions that integrate parapsychology and mainstream science, and thereby has advanced the discipline of parapsychology.”  His work in developing the First Sight model and theory of psi was cited for its important contribution to our understanding of parapsychological phenomena and to making these phenomena more sensible in the context of other contemporary scientific work.  Other speakers at the conference, including Daryl Bem, Stanley Krippner and Sally Rhine Hendrickson also made reference to the integrative potential offered by the model in the context of their own presentations.  Nancy Zingrone presented the award on behalf of the Association.
