One Soul, or Many? The Latest Word of Psychology




Publications abstracted:

Alfred J E Fouillée Revue des Deux Mondes


Experimental Psychology, Organicism, Soul

    Although 'the human being is an aggregation of many beings brought into immediate communication with each other' and our 'individuality' is 'made up of myriads of lesser individualities', Fouillée disputes Alfred Binet's assertion that there are 'several distinct personalities' within each human psyche. Rather, he maintains that this theory 'arises from an indistinctness of the prevailing conception of identity' which fails to account fully for the operations of 'sub-consciousness'. (474)
