Parascience is the study of subjects that are outside the scope of traditional science because they cannot be explained by accepted scientific theory or tested by conventional scientific methods. This study may be concerned with phenomena assumed to be beyond the scope of scientific inquiry or for which no scientific explanation exists. Parascience can also be defined as a subject, method, etc., purporting to be scientific but regarded as unorthodox or unacceptable by the scientific community; an "alternative" science.
