Keil, H(erbert) H(ans) J(ürgen) (1930-)

Lecturer in psychology and active parapsychologist. Keil was born May 30, 1930, at Freiberg, Germany. He emigrated to Australia as a young man and studied at the University of Tasmania, Hobart, from which he earned his B.A. (1957), Dip. Ed. (1959), and B.A. hons. (1960).

After a year as a teaching fellow in psychology at the University of Tasmania (1960-61) Keil became a research fellow at the Parapsychology Laboratory of North Carolina's Duke University (1961-62). He later returned to the University of Tasmania as a lecturer in psychology and became an associate member of the Parapsychological Association.

His parapsychological investigations included studies of psychokinesis with improved controls and automated experimental paraphernalia. With Montague Ullman and J. G. Pratt he presented a critical evaluation of psychokinetic findings regarding the psychic Nina Kulagina. Keil later wrote a book about Pratt, with whom he worked on various occasions. He also published articles in the Proceedings of the Society for Psychical Research and the Journal of the American Society for Psychical Research.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
