Charles McCreery

Charles McCreery has worked with Celia Green since 1964. 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.

In addition to links to Dr McCreery’s papers on philosophy, psychology and statistics, this page links to an online version of his book The Abolition of Genius. Oxford Forum plans to issue a hardback edition of this book as soon as funds permit.

The Abolition of Genius

An analysis of the relationship between genius and money.

Charles McCreery proposes the controversial thesis that the possession of a private income, either by the genius or by his or her patron, has been a necessary condition of the productivity of the great majority of geniuses throughout history.

‘This is a courageous, well-argued and timely book.’
Professor H.J. Eysenck, PhD, DSc
