Michael Cremo is coauthor, with Richard Thompson, of Forbidden Archeology: The Hidden History of the Human Race. He is also author of Human Devolution: A Vedic Alternative to Darwin’s Theory.
Here he explains how Alfred Russel Wallace came to be acknowledged as the co-discover, along with Charles Darwin, of the theory of evolution by natural selection. Wallace’s scientific interest eventually turned toward spiritualism — where he reported witnessing many unusual phenomena under controlled conditions. His colleagues included Sir William Crookes, President of the Royal Society, and William James, the founder of American psychology. Cremo explains his understanding of Wallace’s work as it pertains to human evolution.
New Thinking Allowed host, Jeffrey Mishlove, PhD, hosted and co-produced the original Thinking Allowed public television series. He is a past vice-president of the Association for Humanistic Psychology; and is the recipient of the Pathfinder Award from that Association for his contributions to the field of human consciousness exploration.
