I recently posted a review of Thomas Bullard’s book, The Myth and Mystery of UFOs. In that review I noted that Bullard favors the psycho-social interpretation of UFOs. There was some discussion in the comments about Jerome Clark, the famous UFO researcher, who had been an adherent of the psycho-social view but then abandoned it. I photocopied Clark’s article on the psycho-social interpretation from the 2nd edition of his two-volume UFO Encyclopedia and scanned if for those interested. Like everything else in that encyclopedia, an excellent article.

Thanks Mike for posting this. Very informative! I can see it would be difficult to pull out two or three bullets, 🙂 Clark also mentions someone, David Hufford, who came to mind (though I couldn’t remember his name) when I read the post on Bullard. Hufford has a lengthy interview on YouTube that is interesting as well.
yes; I have Hufford’s folklore study on the “old hag” (book: The Terror That Comes by Night). He also contributed a paper on the same theme at the MIT conference (1992) on alien abduction.
Thanks a lot, doc!
