‘State education should be abolished. If it could ruin my education and my life, it could ruin anybody’s.’







Charles McCreery

He is the co-author with Dr Green of Apparitions (Hamish Hamilton, 1975) and Lucid Dreaming: the Paradox of Consciousness during Sleep (Routledge, 1994). From 1996 to 2000 he was Lecturer in Experimental Psychology at Magdalen College, Oxford.
