- About this book
Through Schopenhauer’s «Saggio sulle visioni di spiriti» this volume reconstructs the philosophical and scientific conceptions on which controversy on psychic phenomena was based during the first half of the nineteenth century. From animal magnetism to phrenology, from discussions on the mind as an organ to the phisiological research on cerebral activity, this book examines the historical origin of ideas that later converged into metaphysics which has since challenged reason and science with pseudo-rational arguments.
