An Experimental Study in the Domain of Hypnotism.

An Experimental Study in the Domain of Hypnotism. By those who are interested in the subject of hypnotism, a subject, indeed, whose claims to practical importance are being more and more pressed upon the medical profession, this contribution will doubtless be read with attention. It is occupied entirely with an account of a large number of extraordinary experiments performed upon a young Hungarian woman who was unusually susceptible to psychological influences. To the author's mind they afford abundant proof of the correctness of the view that hypnotism does not depend upon so-called animal magnetism, but upon a psychical (moral) influence exercised by the experimenter over the subject. The author congratulates the profession that so important a subject as hypnotism has been taken from the hands of charlatans to be developed by scientific inquiry until it has come to occupy a conspicuous place in the domain of science. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png JAMA American Medical Association

Abstract

By those who are interested in the subject of hypnotism, a subject, indeed, whose claims to practical importance are being more and more pressed upon the medical profession, this contribution will doubtless be read with attention. It is occupied entirely with an account of a large number of extraordinary experiments performed upon a young Hungarian woman who was unusually susceptible to psychological influences. To the author's mind they afford abundant proof of the correctness of the view that hypnotism does not depend upon so-called animal magnetism, but upon a psychical (moral) influence exercised by the experimenter over the subject. The author congratulates the profession that so important a subject as hypnotism has been taken from the hands of charlatans to be developed by scientific inquiry until it has come to occupy a conspicuous place in the domain of science.
