Forbidden Science: Journals 1957-1969
Delve into corridors of science with Vallée's 'Forbidden Science'—where UFOs meet the dawn of the digital age.
In "Forbidden Science: Journals 1957-1969," Jacques Vallée took readers into the formative years of his journey as a computer scientist turned ufologist. The book included a compilation of Vallée's personal journals during a period marked by the early stirrings of the technological revolution and the rising interest in UFOs.
Through his entries, Vallée offered insights into his collaborations with leading figures in science and ufology, including his work with J. Allen Hynek and his own evolving theories about the nature of the UFO phenomenon. The journals provided a candid look at his skepticism about extraterrestrial hypotheses, his encounters with high-level secrecy, and his frustrations with the scientific establishment's reluctance to take UFOs seriously. Vallée's writings not only documented the intellectual climate of the time but also charted the emergence of a new approach to investigating and understanding the unexplained.
