It has no provenance. Hi, Don, As I have had occasion to remark in the past, psychosocial ufology amounts to an entirely predictable psychosocial response to the UFO phenomenon. In fact, PSH ufology, the creation of amateur psychologists and amateur sociologists, is in practice little different from debunking as usual. Now open in their adulation for the likes of Philip J. Klass (genius _and_ moral arbiter, we are to believe), they have largely abandoned the pretense of being up to much of anything else. Well, perhaps in fairness, one must note a single difference: PSH rhetoric is ordinarily less crude than Klass's was. That's because it bears a certain resemblance - as befits the liberal- arts majors and librarians who comprise its psychosocial/demographic core - to literary criticism.
