Oliver L. Reiser (1895-1974), b. Columbus, OH; philosophy teacher and professor, Professor of Philosophy at the University of Pittsburgh. He was a friend of Albert Einstein, who wrote a recommendation for this book. Reiser was also an advocate of psychic phenomena and the paranormal.
"The author, who calls himself an advocate of 'scientific humanism,' has made a valuable contribution in this field. By means of rich and varied knowledge he has overcome, without sacrificing his intellectual integrity, the paralyzing relativism that so many clear thinkers of our times feel themselves forced to accept because they have restricted themselves to a purely logical-causal approach. It is an honest, courageous, constructive book which deserves serious attention." - Albert Einstein.
