Promotion of Science, Reason and Critical Thinking

The Committee for Skeptical Inquiry encourages the critical investigation of paranormal and fringe-science claims from a responsible, scientific point of view and disseminates factual information about the results of such inquiries to the scientific community and the public.

CSI's flagship magazine, Skeptical Inquirer, explores extraordinary claims from a scientific perspective. It examines what the scientific community knows about controversial subjects within the realms of the paranormal and elsewhere. The magazine exposes pseudoscience and provides expert commentary on hot button issues within society. It avoids the sensationalism often presented by the press, television, and movies and provides critical thinking tools to examine the information presented within the media and online.
