Hypnotism: A History
Derek Forrest (au); Anthony Storr (fr)
From the 18th-cent. discovery of ‘animal magnetism’ to the current uses of hypnosis & hypnotherapy, Forrest’s fascinating work charts the turbulent development of hypnotic theory & practice. When Anton Mesmer began to cure patients with ‘animal magnetism’, he initiated a controversy in the medical profession that continues to this day. His theory of a universal fluid in the human body that could be regulated by magnetic influence was developed by his disciples, until it became the hypnotism of today. Introduces us to a range of extraordinary characters including: Charcot, Freud’s mentor, & the eccentric Dr. Elliotson. Explores the dramatic events of 250 years of hypnosis. “An enlightening study of an intriguing & controversial therapy.”
