Editorial Reviews

Review

"Definitely a book for the specialist, but for its insights into the development of Victorian thought and as an examination of one of the lesser-known figures of the age, this is strongly recommended."

(John Van der Kiste Bookbag)

"No author before Hamilton has presented such a global and integrative perspective of Myers. Hamilton combines well the personal and intellectual aspects of Myers with his psychical and psychological work. Furthermore, he covers areas of Myers that have previously been neglected, or only briefly discussed. In fact, I would recommend that Hamilton's work must be the first step in obtaining a good panoramic view of Myers."

(Carlos S. Alvarado Journal of the Society of Psychical Research)

"Hamilton's labours are to be applauded in giving the reader entry into the life and work of this sensitive and significant scholar."

(Kevin Tingay The Christian Parapsychologist)

"Myers [was] the first to present strong arguments contradicting W.B. Carpenter's notion of automatisms as 'unconscious cerebration’, and they upset the dominant medical view of hallucinations and dissociative phenomena as intrinsically pathological."

(Andreas Sommer, University College London)

"The life of F.W.H. Myers – a man of various and remarkable gifts – involved many of the most significant aspects and personalities of the Victorian intellectual scene, yet no full biography of him has hitherto been written. Trevor Hamilton has brought together a good deal of new information about him, and analyses his career and character with sensitivity and insight. He tackles the decades-long commitment to psychical research, for which Myers is now best known, in detail and with admirable balance and lucidity. Altogether a fascinating read!"

(Alan Gauld)

"Whatever one's attitude towards the lasting value of Myers’s and his fellow investigators, labours, it must be mixed with a sense of admiration at their productivity and Hamilton has emulated their energy in grappling with Myers’s life... The result is a worthy addition to the small number of works which deal in a critical but fair way with the efforts of Myers and the other SPR pioneers as they sought to probe, not always successfully, but certainly sincerely and despite their personal frailties, the mysteries of the human soul."

(Tom Ruffles)

"Frederic Myers was one of the great pioneers in the scientific exploration of consciousness. He was original, brave and prolific. In this well-researched book, Trevor Hamilton sheds new light on his life and shows how Myers' work was embedded in the rich social and intellectual life of late-nineteenth-century Britain. I read it with great interest."

(Rupert Sheldrake)
