About this Item

First Edition. Pages 44 pp. + 4 pp. publisher's ads.8vo. Printed paper wraps First Edition. Guibert, a priest at the Church of Saint-Sulpice, was simultaneously Professor of Natural Sciences at the Seminary of Issy.Here he takes note of Charcot's contributions to neurologic science, especially in the area of hypnotism and of hysteria, but does not accept Charcot's extreme secularism and vitriolic attacks on the Church and on religion. Guibert, reviewing the facts and theories of hypnotism, sees difficulties which can only be resolved through a deep religious faith. In exploring demoniacal behavior through history, while conceding the organic nature of hysteria encompassed in some humanbehaviors, Guibert rejects the notion that it is only the organic hysterical component which accounts for the behavior. He invokes a supernatural component in demoniacal behaviors. In this vein, Guibert explores the union of science and philosophy, in an area that lies between Science and Faith. Water stain on covers. Paper tape repair on spine and edge of rear cover. Ex libris, with a few modest stamps. Else, Very Good. Bookseller Inventory # 9172
