The following chapters, therefore, have been prepared for the purpose of indicating first what has been accomplished thus far by scientific students of the self, and of assisting the reader to prosecute study on his own account with the aid of the technical works which he will find enumerated in the bibliographical essay at the close of the book--an essay purposely confined so far as possible to works of recent publication. The attempt has been made, to correlate the discoveries of the psychical researchers and the psychopathologists with a view to showing that instead of undermining the long-cherished faith in the immortality of man the results of their inquiries and experiments confirm and buttress it"--Preface.
