Animal magnetism by Alfred Binet( Book )

50 editions published between 1887 and 2009 in English and held by 272 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"We think it well to state that this work was written in the environment of the Salpt̊rir̈e. By this we not only mean that our descriptions apply to facts observed in that hospital, but also that our personal observations were made in accordance with the method inaugurated by M. Charcot, the chief of the school of the Salpt̊rir̈e, that is, in accordance with the experimental method which is illustrated by clinical science. While relying on the observation of spontaneous facts, we have strengthened these facts by experiments. It would at present be premature to write a didactic treatise on animal magnetism and hypnotism. This work only aims at giving an account of special researches which, notwithstanding their number and variety, will not justify general conclusions on the question. After receiving this warning, the reader will not be surprised to meet with occasional breaches of continuity, which are, however, more apparent than real, and which are due to our resolution not to speak of experiments which we have not verified for ourselves"--Preface.

The pathology of emotions; physiological and clinical studies by Ch Féré( Book )

13 editions published between 1892 and 2015 in English and French and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The aim of this work is to determine, as far as possible, the physiological conditions of the emotions, and to show that these conditions are identical with the somatic reactions resulting from the action of the physical agents to the influence of which man is subject. One will see then that the emotions are somatic states which are accompanied with states of consciousness such as one may see developed in consequence of physical excitations. External excitations, and representations of external excitations, emotions, can determine the same reactions, general or local, but variable according to the anterior condition of the patient or subject: one finds in the wake of moral shocks and in the wake of physical shocks the same pathological accidents, whether of the bodily or intellectual order. The absence of normal physical excitants are accompanied by the same depression of the animal functions as the absence of mental excitations. This similitude of physiological conditions will lead us hereafter to establish the physical nature, normal and abnormal, of the mind; and to propose prophylactic measures, hygienic and therapeutic, whose physiological action shall be experimentally adapted to their end"--Preface.

Scientific and esoteric studies in sexual degeneration in mankind and in animals by Ch Féré( Book )

10 editions published between 1932 and 2011 in English and held by 57 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Describes variations and deviations in sexual interaction in both humans and animals. The chapter notes that instincts follow an unvarying order. The first to develop are those relating to the preservation of the individual: then appear the ones relating to the preservation of the species; and finally those relating to the preservation of various social groups. The biological intent of the sexual instinct is the preservation of the species; it develops much later than the instinct of self-preservation. It is a secondary instinct. Many of the lower animals which reproduce their kind without copulation have only individualistic instincts. Individualistic instincts are more persistent, and the instinct of reproduction only appears when individualistic instincts are fully completed. Since sexual reproduction is a condition which is indispensable for the propagation of the species, the individualistic instincts must be suppressed in a certain degree in its function. And as social instincts develop, there is bound to be an analogous effect upon the instinct of reproduction. In civilized societies the intellectual element is so preponderating in sexual unions that, according to Starcke, amongst the various ways of desecrating married life, intellectual desecration is the most serious. Still, it must be admitted that a systematization of sexual selection, exclusively based on intellectual and moral qualities, would probably result in annihilation of the species."
