Parapsychology: Frontier Science of the Mind is a book by Joseph Banks Rhine and Joseph Gaither Pratt, originally published in 1957.[1] It is a textbook and reference work which provides an introduction to the field of parapsychology, which discusses "methods for testing, tables for evaluation, reading lists, and other research aids".[2]

Parapsychology: Frontier Science of the Mind has been reviewed in The Philosophical Review,[3] Philosophy East and West,[4] and the Southern Medical Journal.[5]

Gregg Dougherty in a review wrote "the book as a whole is clearly and rather quietly written" but noted that there is "no attempt to argue with or convince the extremely skeptical reader."[6]
