Psychology Pioneer G. Stanley Hall on the Study of Parapsychical Phenomena

“We have largely evicted superstition from the physical universe, which used to be the dumping ground of the miraculous. . . .

The mysteries of our psychic being are bound ere long to be cleared up. Every one of these ghostly phenomena will be brought under the domain of law. The present recrudescence hereof ancient faiths in the supernatural is very interesting as a psychic atavism, as the last flashing up of old psychoses soon to become extinct.”

(G. Stanley Hall, Introduction: Amy Tanner, Studies in Spritism, p. xxxii)
