Fahler, Jarl Ingmar (1925-)

Finnish psychologist, hypnotherapist, parapsychological researcher. Fahler was born December 27, 1925, in Mariehamn, Finland, and studied at the University of Helsinki (B.A., 1952; M.A., 1953). He served successively as a staff member of the Foreign Department and the Finnish Police (1950-54); as a visiting research fellow at the Parapsychology Laboratory, Duke University, and the Research Laboratory, Parapsychology Foundation (1957-58); and as a staff member of the Finnish Ministry of Home Affairs (1960-62). He served as president of the Society for Psychical Research, Finland (1951-62), and was a charter member of the Parapsychological Association.

Fahler experimented with ESP and psychokinesis, psychological aspects of ESP in hypnosis, and precognitive factors in relation to introspective awareness. He also studied spontaneous psi phenomena in Finland. Beginning in 1959 he concentrated his research on the states of awareness induced by mescaline, LSD, and psilocybin, about which he published several articles in Finnish and Swedish journals.

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.
