Human personality and its survival of bodily death by F. W. H Myers( Book )

110 editions published between 1903 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 1,622 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Long considered one of the most complete books dealing with psychical research. Myers treats all aspects of the mind which indicate, in some way, that the personality of man transcends time and space, and may perhaps survive bodily death
Wordsworth by F. W. H Myers( Book )

127 editions published between 1880 and 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,569 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Published in 1880, this volume in the English Men of Letters series is enlivened by the author's personal acquaintance with many intimates of the poet, including his son and grandson, who provided Myers with as-yet-unpublished material. As such, this biography is essential reading for Wordsworth enthusiasts

"All that I purpose in this work, therefore, is briefly to indicate the relation which these "physical phenomena" hold to the psychical phenomena with which my book is concerned. Alongside of the faculty or achievement of man's ordinary or supraliminal self I shall demarcate the faculty or achievement which I ascribe to his subliminal self; and alongside of this again I shall arrange such few well-attested phenomena as seem prima facie to demand the physical intervention of discarnate intelligences. I have traced the utmost limits to which any claim to a scientific basis for these inquiries can at present be pushed. Yet the subject matter has not yet been exhausted of half its significance. The conclusions to which our evidence points are not such as can be discussed or dismissed as a mere matter of speculative curiosity. They affect every belief, every faculty, every hope and aim of man; and they affect him the more intimately as his interests grow more profound. Whatever meaning be applied to ethics, to philosophy, to religion, the concern of all these is here. It would have been inconsistent with my main purpose had I interpolated considerations of this kind into the body of this work. For that purpose was above all to show that realms left thus far to philosophy or to religion, too often to mere superstition and idle dream, might in the end be brought under steady scientific rule. I contend that Religion and Science are no separable or independent provinces of thought or action; but rather that each name implies a different aspect of the same ideal; that ideal being the completely normal reaction of the individual spirit to the whole of cosmic law. Assuredly this deepening response of man's spirit to the Cosmos deepening round him must be affected by all the signals which now are glimmering out of night to tell him of his inmost nature and his endless fate. Who can think that either Science or Revelation has spoken as yet more than a first half-comprehended word? But if in truth souls departed call to us, it is to them that we shall listen most of all. We shall weigh their undesigned concordances, we shall analyze the congruity of their message with the facts which such a message should explain. To some thoughts which may thus be generated I shall try to give expression in an Epilogue to the present work." (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2006 APA, all rights reserved)
