Excerpt from The Psychology of Suggestion: A Research Into the a Research Into the Subconscious Nature of Man and Society

The German school, with Wundt at its head, at first started out on similar lines, but they could not make any use of the subconscious, and their speculations ran wild in the~fancies Of Hartmann. The reason of this failure is due to the fact that the concept Of the sub conscious as conceived by the German school was extremely vague, and had rather the character of a mechanical than that of a psychical process. An un conscious consciousness that was their concept of the subconscious. In such a form as this the subconscious was certainly meaningless - mere nonsense-and had to be given up. The German psychological investigaf tions are now confined to the content Of consciousness in so far as the individual is immediately conscious Of it. But as this form of consciousness is extremely nar row and circumscribed, the results arrived at, though remarkable for their thoroughness, are after all of a rather trivial nature. It is what Prof. James aptly characterizes the elaboration of the obvious. We may therefore, with full right, assert that it was the French psychologists who made proper use of the sub conscious and arrived at results that are of the utmost importance to psychology, although it were well if the French were to conduct their investigations with Ger man thoroughness.

Book Description Forgotten Books. Paperback. Condition: New. This item is printed on demand. 418 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.8in.Excerpt from The Psychology of Suggestion: A Research Into the a Research Into the Subconscious Nature of Man and SocietyI am glad to contribute to this book of Dr. Boris Sidis a few words of introduction, which may possibly gain for it a prompter recognition by the world of readers who are interested in the things of which it treats. Much of the experimental part of the work, although planned entirely by Dr. Sidis, was done in the Harvard Psychological Laboratory, and I have been more or less in his confidence while his theoretic conclusions, based on his later work in the Pathological Institute of the New York State Hospitals, were taking shape. The meaning of personality, with its limits and its laws, forms a problem which until quite recently had to be discussed almost exclusively by logical and metaphysical methods. Within the past dozen years, however, an immense amount of the new empirical material had been injected into the question by the observations which the recognition by science of the hypnotic state set in motion. Many of these observations are pathological: fixed ideas, hysteric attacks, insane delusions, mediumistic phenomena, etc. And altogether, although they are far from having solved the problem of personality, they must be admitted to have transformed its outward shape.
