Overview

Ever since Franz Mesmer captured the imagination of Paris in the 1780s with his marvelous "magnetic" powers, hypnosis has been the subject of enormous controversy.
With this innovative book Kenneth Bowers provides an unusually clear and coherent introduction to a puzzling and elusive subject. Organizing his presentation around the major questions surrounding this often paradoxical phenomenon—Are hypnotic effects genuine? What is hypnotic suggestibility and the hypnotic state? Can anyone be hypnotized?—the author takes the reader systematically through the pivotal experiments in the field. And more, his evenhanded approach brings to light those critical studies that do and do not support theories of hypnosis. The author concludes his accountwith a look at the clinical applications of hypnosis.
