The volume here presented does not assume to be a systematic treatise upon hypnotism, nor even upon its therapeutic uses; for that the works of Bernheim, Moll, Wetterstrand, Tuckey and others may suffice – but there are certain phases of hypnotism which seem to the author to be of special interest and present importance, and it is for the purpose of distinctly presenting these special phases that the following chapters have been prepared.

Table of Contents

1. The Subjective Element in the Newer Therapeutics 2. The Relation of Hypnotism to the Subconscious Mind 3. Cases in General Practice Treated by Hypnotism and Suggestion 4. Educational Uses of Hypnotism 5. Forms of Suggestion Useful in the Treatment of Inebriety 6. Six Miscellaneous Cases Treated by Hypnotism Without Suggestion 7. Concerning "Rapport" 8. The Ethics of Hypnotism
