Summary
Dr. Thouless examines meticulously the aims, methods and results of a wide range of fascinating work: the classic experiments in reproducing drawings, guessing cards, and throwing dice are all rigorously anaysed, and research work on gifted stafe performers is looked at with a fresh, critical eye. Dr. Thouless also has much to say on method. He examines the control of possible fraud in both subject and experimenter in in answering the crucial question "Can the apparent successes be explained by chance", leads the reader to a balanced judgement on the significance of laboratory results. A final chapter suggests some useful lines for further research
