Bel exemplaire. ********* "Binet and Féré have collaborated to write this important early study on their research into animal magnetism or hypnotism. The book opens with an extensive review of the history of hypnotism from the time of Mesmer to the authors' day. Their research was performed at the Salpêtriére and they provide many examples to support their findings. They identify and discuss three states of hypnotism--lethargy, catalepsy, and somnambulism--and present the ideas and experiences of other researchers as well. They also present their observations on the behavioral and physiological aspects of hypnotism in medicine and education. They close the book by recommending that a responsible and ethical approach be maintained by those using hypnotism." Heirs of Hippocrates 2189. ______ Format : In-8.
