Abstract

Our definition and understanding of ‘abnormality’ is affected by the culture we live in. Some explanations fit neatly into the general view of life that prevails in a particular culture at a particular time. Some phenomena, on the other hand, challenge our view of life and are regarded with much greater scepticism. The many ‘supernatural’ experiences that people report are an example of this. Religious visions, and visions of deceased loved ones are commonly reported but do not fit into our current explanations of the world. These experiences, therefore, become marginalised and ignored.
