A further record of observations of certain trance phenomena
AbstractReviews the report, by James Hervey Hyslop . In this report of 649 pages the author presents the results of his own investigations into the case of Mrs. Piper, together with an exhaustive analysis of the data and a discussion of their theoretical bearing. It may be well to state at once that he decides in favor of the spiritistic interpretation of the phenomena. Approximately the first half of the work is devoted to a discussion of the rival theories of telepathy and spiritism, this being preceded by a systematized abstract of the records. The second half is made up of several appendices which contain the detailed records of the twelve sittings held by Professor Hyslop himself, together with those of the five sittings held by Dr. Hodgson for the former during his absence in New York.
