In 1976 the Committee for the Scientific Investigation of Claims of the Paranormal (CSICOP) was founded. [Earlier this year it changed it’s name to the Committee for Skeptical Inquiry (CSI).] Marcello Truzzi was one of the founders of CSICOP, but he left the organization in 1977.
From 1978 to 1987 he edited Zetetic Scholar, which carried many articles by both proponents and critics of paranormal claims. The journal fostered extensive dialogue and debate. It also published several exposés.
