CHAPTER I. A PRELIMINARY SURVEY. The deep interest and importance of the research which this book describes will best be appreciated if introduced by an account of the circumstances out of which it arose.

PREFACE BY THE President of the Society for Psychical Research One of the facts which by general consent in the present stage of psychological science require study is the nature, and if possible the cause, of a special lucidity, a sensitiveness of perception, or accessibility to ideas appearing to arrive through channels other than usual organs of sense, which is sometimes met with among simple people in a rudimentary form, and in a more... more...
