Overview

A classic work in the field of psychic manifestations of the human intellect. The author, Dr. Thomson Jay Hudson, Ph.D., LL.D., was the acknowledged authority in the field of metaphysics when he wrote this book in the late years of the last century. This book explores all areas of the metaphysical world from early philosophers to hypnotism and mesmerism, clairvoyance, visions, right through an overview of the psycho-therapeutic practices of that, time. The phenomena of spiritism is covered in all its forms including contact with the spirit world as well as case histories of witchcraft, hauntings and possession. It remains as fascinating and informative today as it was when it was first published.

This indispensable book is an essential component of anyone truly devoted to the study of Hypnosis and related mental phenomena. Hudson explores the history and psychology of the Hypnotic trance and all relative techniques in a readily accessible way without sacrificing articulation.

In the Law of Psychic Phenomena, Hudson has attempted to create a classification of verified psychic phenomena, accounts of which is found in the literature current on the subject; and has tentatively formulated a working hypothesis for the systematic study of all classes of psychic phenomena. Hudson has collected a vast array of facts, thus accumulated and verified, and awaiting scientific classification and analysis, which would seem to justify at least a tentative effort to apply to them the processes of induction, to the end that the fundamental law of psychic phenomena may be discovered.
