Read full description of the books:



In this classic study of the supernatural , Lyall Watson challenges scientific orthodoxy by applying new criteria to the investigation of the unknown. Probing the "soft edges" of science, Watson dispenses with the distinction between the natural and the supernatural and focuses on Supernature; those phenomena that are not wholly paranormal, but which are not classified as natural occurrences according to traditional science. With both scientific objectivity and a wide-eyed sense of wonder at the mysteries of the universe, this fascinating and open-minded study proves beyond doubt that science is stranger than the supernatural. 'A fascinating feast of cosmic law and order...compelling reading' New Scientist

Read information about the author

Ebook Supernature read Online! Lyall Watson was a South African botanist, zoologist, biologist, anthropologist, ethologist, and author of many new age books, among the most popular of which is the best seller Supernature. Lyall Watson tried to make sense of natural and supernatural phenomena in biological terms. He is credited with the first published use of the term "hundredth monkey" in his 1979 book, Lifetide. It is a hypothesis that aroused both interest and ire in the scientific community and continues to be a topic of discussion over a quarter century later.

He was born in Johannesburg as Malcolm Lyall-Watson. He had an early fascination for nature in the surrounding bush, learning from Zulu and !Kung bushmen. Watson attended boarding school at Rondebosch Boys' High School in Cape Town, completing his studies in 1955. He enrolled at Witwatersrand University in 1956, where he earned degrees in botany and zoology, before securing an apprenticeship in palaentology under Raymond Dart, leading on to anthropological studies in Germany and the Netherlands. Later he earned degrees in geology, chemistry, marine biology, ecology and anthropology. He completed a doctorate of ethology at the University of London, under Desmond Morris. He also worked at the BBC writing and producing nature documentaries.

Around this time he shortened his name to Lyall Watson. He served as director of the Johannesburg Zoo, an expedition leader to various locales, and Seychelles commissioner for the International Whaling Commission.

In the late 1980s he presented Channel 4's coverage of sumo tournaments.

Lyall Watson began writing his first book, Omnivore during the early 1960s while under the supervision of Desmond Morris, and wrote more than 20 others.
