A Propos De L'Introduction A La Métapsychique Humaine. Réfutation Du Livre De René Sudre; Bibliothèque De Philosophie Spiritualiste Moderne Et Des Sciences Psychiques

Paris: Editions Jean Meyer, 1926. First Edition. Hardcover. Octavo. 252ppp. Attractive contemporary binding, vellum spine and corners over brown patterned cloth boards, gilt lettered leather spine label. FRENCH text. As the title suggests the work is fundamentally a response by the Italian Spiritualist, Ernest Bozzano (1862 - 1943) to the book "Introduction à la Métapsychique Humaine" (1926) by the French parapsychologist and writer René Sudre (1880 - 1968). Sudre's work was a comprehensive survey of paranormal phenomena, in which he accepted the validity of most of the events described, but rejected the typical Spiritualist rationale for them, instead giving a more materialist explanation of their origins. Bozzano's work is largely a refutation of that hypothesis. An English edition was later published under the title "Animism and Spiritism: A Reply to M. Sudre's 'Introduction a la Metapsychiques Humains." Originally a softcover, rebound without wrappers, as was typical (indeed intended) with French books of that period. Boards a little rubbed overall, vellum a bit darkened and discoloured, pages toned, unmarked. Overall a tight & clean VG copy. Item #63036
