Early in his career, the German doctor Franz Mesmer (1734-1815) became fascinated by the concept that the invisible natural forces or 'magnetism' exerted by planets, minerals and animals (or humans) could produce physical effects including healing. His influential 'discoveries' were highly controversial, and Mesmer tried persistently but unsuccessfully to obtain scientific recognition for his theory of 'animal magnetism'. This book, published in 1814, was edited by Mesmer's friend J. C. Wolfart, also a medical doctor and a former sceptic. Its scope goes far beyond the mere question of healing individuals. Mesmer proposes a system that he claims would both improve the physical and mental health of individuals and promote the ethical ordering of society. Mesmer appeals to future leaders to develop his blueprint of a more 'natural' and balanced world order, based on his understanding of Enlightenment science and his observations of human physiology, psychology, education, government and justice

Précis historique des faits relatifs au magnétisme animal : 1781 by Franz Anton Mesmer( Book )

Franz Anton Mesmer avait publié le 30 mars 1779 son Mémoire sur la découverte du magnétisme animal. Le magnétisme animal fut officiellement condamné par la Faculté de médecine de Paris le 18 septembre 1780. Malgré le soutien de Marie-Antoinette, Mesmer n'obtiendra pas durant l'année 1781 la reconnaissance escomptée de la royauté. C'est l'histoire de ces événements qui est exposée ici par Mesmer lui-même dans cet ouvrage. Le livre est précédé d'une longue introduction où l'on retrouve en intégralité les textes critiques originaux de Deslon (1780), De Horne (1780), Paulet (1780) et Bergasse (1781)
