Run For the DiamondsDespine and the Evolution of Psychology: Historical and Medical Perspectives on Dissociative Disorders

Joanne M. McKeown (Editor), Catherine G. Fine (Editor)

Despine and the Evolution of Psychology: Historical and Medical Perspectives on Dissociative Disorders is an annotated translation of a landmark study in the history of psychology--Antoine Despine's 1838 monograph of a cure of major dissociative disorder using animal magnetism, or hypnosis. Joanne McKeown, associate professor of French and primary editor of the book, devoted more than 10 years to the project, which brings this seminal work to English-language readers for the first time.
