The Miracle of Mesmerism. By Dr. Charcot
Jean M Charcot Forum
Mesmerism, Photography, Supernaturalism
Charcot resists invoking a supernatural explanation for the enhanced capacities of hypnotic patients. His suggestion that 'it is possible for the mind to impress upon a blank sheet of paper a picture, visible only to the eye of the hypnotised person', if properly followed up, 'may lead us far' (117).
