Suggestion as a Fact and as a Hypothesis [La suggestion comme fait et comme hypothèse]. (Revue Philosophique, September, 1916.) E. Boirac

  • J. Barfield Adams
Extract

The labours of the School of Nancy, says the writer of this article, have definitively established the important rôle played by suggestion in the greater part of parapsychic phenomena. That suggestion is a fact is no longer to be disputed, but it is perhaps necessary to understand more clearly the nature and conditions of this fact; to determine in what cases suggestion manifestly intervenes without any possible doubt of its presence, and in what cases its presence is merely supposed as a more or less likely explanation or interpretation of phenomena; that is to say, in what cases suggestion is a proved fact, and in what cases it is simply a hypothesis of which the proof remains to be established.
