Introduction

Born in 1843, Frederic Myers was an English poet, essayist and psychic researcher who was one of the early leading (and founding) members of the Society for Psychical Research, established in 1882. In the context of late-Victorian experiments with sťances and the spirit world, Myersí research interests in testing the possibility of spiritual afterlife over-lapped with certain aspects of contemporary, more mainstream, psychology and its exploration of unconscious aspects of identity. Myers died in 1901. In this article from the Proceedings of the Society for Psychical Research, vol 5, 1889, Myers reports on Pierre Janetís work with hysterical patients; Myers was the first to describe the work of Janet and Freud to an Anglophone audience.
