First published nearly years ago, this work is still considered by many to be the most comprehensive book on telepathy and the unconscious. Regarded by psychologist William James as “the pioneer who staked out a vast tract of mental wilderness and planted the flag of genuine science on it,” Frederic Myers brought together, in a book richly documented with fact, a great store of information on extrasensory perception, hypnotism, and related topics.
Dover’s complete reprint of the one-volume edition of Myers’ classic makes the work much more accessible to students and teachers of psychology as well as to interested general readers.

This book analyzes an earlier book, Phantasms Of the Living. So I give it 4 stars instead of 5 because it builds personnality the earlier work and you’re really better off having read Phantasms of the Living before you read Human Personality and its Survival of Bodily Death.
That said, Human Personality does give a careful examination of various apparently supernatural fwb.
In the time it was written, science had not yet closed itself off from investigating such things with an open mind. On the other hand, Russia the East continued to personaliyt an open mind on the supernormal. One person found this helpful. Give a copy of this forgotten classic to your favorite Materialist this year- and if you can get them to read it- see what they perssonality come up with to explain the numerous anecdotes contained therein. A ‘crisis apparition’ is where a loved one appears and gives words of love and consolation to one one in a waking state, quite unaware of their condition- quite vividly- then disappears myyers suddenly.
Hours later, the phone rings and- you guessed it- the person finds out that the loved one had passed away at the time of the apparition. Now, how is your materialist friend going to explain this? Well, I’ve tried it, and the best I’ve heard them come up with is something to the effect of ‘well, uh, people have visions like that a lot, but, uh, don’t usually remember them, and so that morning it just so happened that so-and-so died, and, uh, so personalkty just a coincidence”.
That’s the best they’ve got.
Either that, or claiming that it was fraud. But Meyers was a careful researcher, and only kept the best cases with the most reputable and upstanding of witnesses. This book is just brimming with the best kind of ‘courtroom evidence’- evidence that Materialists deny, again and again- I suppose because that’s the best way they’ve got from having their meta-theory rained on by the thundercloud of good evidence in this book, that there is something very compelling to all this ‘soul’ nonsense.
Now, I agree that the whole notion of a ‘soul’ is fraught with difficulties of one kind or another, trying to make sense of it all in a cogent way- but, hey, these stories are not going anyplace anytime soon.
All it takes is one white crow to prove that all crows are not black. Meyers writes in a very clear, logical manner that doesn’t get bogged down in too much theorizing. It’s very, very readable- a page turner- more than a hundred years later. In this much edited volume, the stories do much of the talking, and they speak for themselves, every one myera them. This book commands a central place in my library- and after I’ve been dazzled by the latest neuro-research into humab of our true existence as meat-machines by the greatest cutting edge researchers, who would literally roll their eyes at such nonsense as this, I slide this volume off the bookshelf and wonder, again, at the mysteries of life.
However, the world of the early 20th century was obsessed with materialism and effectively ignored this finding. Those few scientists that did review the work came away convinced, more often than not. The problem was that most “reputable” scientists wouldn’t even consider it- a problem that continues to this day.

Human Personality and Its Survival of Bodily Death by F. W. H. Myers – Free Ebook
Myers was not some fringe crank, for he was a recognized classics scholar, platonic philosopher, poet, and son of a clergyman. It was Myers who first translated and introduced Freud to the British public. He was also the originator of the term “telepathy. That is what strikes you about the vast compendium of cases included here- they were painstakingly documented, all witnesses were carefully interviewed, and sworn affidavits were obtained.
In no way can this be considered a book of prsonality. But that was only half of his work. Starting a few years after his death mysrs spirit started communicating with widely separated mediums in England, the United States, and India.
The result was a huge body of interconnected messages called the “Cross Correspondences. But that doesn’t make it any less true. A very personal book that anyone can relate to in one way or another.
The book could be a matter of controversy, yet the editor has clarified that from the start. A great read without a doubt. Highly recommended for sure! A classic study by a British scientist and doctor about paranormal experiences, using testimony from evidential mediums, apparent hauntings, and the like, that provides grounding for researchers of near-death experiences and the conclusion that something survives the death of the physical body.
Today we wouldn’t call it personality, but rather the soul or essence, but its title reflects the limited scope of early mainstream psychology. See all 37 reviews. Customers who viewed this item also viewed. Phantasms personaoity the Living; Volume 1.
