Publications abstracted:

Frederick Greenwood Contemporary Review Benjamin W Richardson Asclepiad


Experimental Psychology, Supernaturalism, Materialism

    Recounts Greenwood's sympathetic treatment of the 'occult phenomena connected with dreams, sub-consciousness, etc.' (148), and rejoices at the rather surprising prospect of Greenwood 're-enforcing the army of those who make war against the materialist superstition, which refuses to admit the clearest possible evidence as to the existence of things which cannot be accounted for by their hypothesis'. Richardson, on the other hand, continues to insist that dreams are only 'explainable on physical grounds'. (149)
