19th century spiritualism and insanity

Recommended Posts

Kathleen Meadows: Over the past four years I've been spending much of my spare time researching 19th century spiritualism. I can't seem to get enough of it. The connections in particular between the suffrage movement, spiritualism and the emerging notions of sanity are enthralling. The budding scientific psychology of the 19th century was keen to show that both spiritualist mediums and believers were mentally deranged, in fact that spiritualism actually attracted the insane. No doubt the popularity and buzz value of spiritualism was affording the new psychologies a weigh-in to centre stage.
