By: Franz, Shepherd Ivory, 1874-1933.
Publisher: New York ; London : Whittlesey house : McGraw-Hill Book Co., Inc., 1933Description: xv, 188 p. ill.Subject(s): Amnesia | Personality disorders | Multiple Personality DisorderAdditional physical formats: OriginalDDC classification: 616.85234 Online resources: Fulltext available via EBSCOhost - Shibboleth login required Also issued in print.Summary: "Stories of dual or of multiple personalities, which technically are called continued amnesias, have been interesting both to the novelist and to the psychologist. They have attracted the attention of the former because of their spectacular character, and of the latter because of their speculative possibilities. To some of the latter it may be unimportant to read an account of an individual with loss of memory without a new, or without a confirmation of an old, explanation. The tale to be spun here is, however, unaccompanied by hypothesis. To the writer it seems more valuable at this time to recount the facts, whether they be behavioristic or introspectional, than to attempt to conceal them with gauzy guesses about neurograms or synaptic retractions, or to clothe them with the fashionable garments of unconscious mechanisms and levels of consciousness.
