Contemporary Humbug: Astrology and Modern Prophecy, Part 3 of 5

William Bennett leads this discussion about contemporary fascinations with astrology, prophecy, and the occult. Joseph Adelson, William Cook, Ronald Herzman, and Steven Tigner discuss the significance these fascinations have for understanding American society and values and the intersections of the occult, organized religion, and academia.

At the time of this interview, Adelson, a Fellow at the National Humanities Center (1978-79), was professor of psychology at the University of Michigan. Bennett was director of the center. Cook was professor of history and Herzman was professor of English, both at the State University of New York at Geneseo. Tigner was professor of philosophy at the University of Toledo.
