Religion and medicine : the moral control of nervous disorders by Elwood Worcester( Book )

2 editions published in 1908 in English and held by 326 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The object of this book is to describe in plain terms the work in behalf of nervous sufferers which has been undertaken in Emmanuel Church, Boston. So much has been written on the subject of our movement, in many instances by persons slightly acquainted with it, that we feel it due to the public and to ourselves to state what we are doing and to discuss the religious and scientific principles on which we are building. If a temporary digression may be pardoned, our Class for the Treatment of Nervous Disorders is not the first effort we have made for the relief of the sick. Nearly three years ago the Emmanuel Church Tuberculosis Class began its beneficent mission under the medical direction of Dr. Joseph H. Pratt. The question we attempted to answer in founding this class was, can the poorest consumptives be cured in the slums of a great city without removing them from their homes? The treatment consisted of the approved modern method of combating consumption, plus discipline, friendship, encouragement, and hope, in short, a combination of physical and moral elements, and we are satisfied that the personality of Dr. Pratt is largely responsible for the fact that while our work has been carried on under the most unfavorable environment, our records will bear comparison with those of the best sanatoria"--Introduction.

Footfalls on the boundary of another world : with narrative illustrations by Robert Dale Owen( Book )

3 editions published between 1860 and 1863 in English and held by 154 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Robert Dale Owen (1801-1877) was born in Scotland and emigrated to the United States in 1825 to help his social reformer father Robert Owen set up an experimental community in New Harmony, Indiana. He was elected to the US House of Representatives in 1842, and appointed US minister at Naples in 1853. In addition to his political career, Owen was a follower of spiritualism. In Footfalls on the Boundary of Another World, published in 1860, he draws from his own observations of supernatural phenomena as well as published research in fields such as psychology. Owen's comprehensive study addresses six thematic areas. He starts by comparing attempts to navigate uncharted spiritual waters to Christopher Columbus' voyages of discovery, and then moves on to examine themes such as dreams, disturbances and apparitions
Enigmas of psychical research by James H Hyslop( Book )

4 editions published in 1906 in English and held by 140 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the present book I go over the whole field of the supernormal, including such material as crystal gazing, coincidental dreams, clairvoyance, and premonitions. I have tried to give these subjects that unity of interest and meaning which are due to the supernormal having psychological and demanding more scientific investigation than has yet been done. This book should provide evidence of something which needs further investigation. Taken collectively the facts have an impressive character for some general conclusion, but those who understand psychology will want to reserve their judgment for something more than a probable supernormal. Speculations ignoring normal experience must still wait awhile, and perhaps ought always to be discouraged on the part of any but the most expert"--Preface.
