M. Janet supports the opinion that hysteria is in the main a mental malady. He has enjoyed the advantage of studying the symptoms in the service of Professor Charcot, at the Salpêtrière. As would be expected by those acquainted with the author's writings, the work is philosophical in its character, but is also medical. He divides the study of the mental condition of the hysterical into two parts, the first being the analysis of the mental symptoms or stigmata, the second an examination of the accidental mental phenomena of hysteria. The former only is treated of in these pages; the latter is reserved for a future publication, to which we shall look forward with interest.
