Abstract:

"The preparation for the American public of a translation of Professor Dubois's "Les Psychoneuroses" has been undertaken with the conviction that its publication in this country would be particularly opportune at this time, when the effect of the mental representations upon the bodily conditions is attracting so much attention here, and when the problems connected with it are being attempted from so many and such various points of attack. It is a question as alluring as it is baffling, and it is not easy to preserve toward it an attitude at once open and balanced. Such an attitude, however, Professor Dubois has maintained from the start, and to it he owes the exceptionally convincing quality of his work. Whether in the opening chapters, where he discusses the fundamental philosophy underlying the position which he holds, or in the latter portion of the book, where he describes so clearly and charmingly the exact methods by which he has won such notable success, this sane and tranquil attitude is obvious. It is difficult to see how one who accepts the well nigh axiomatic premises with which the author sets out can avoid accompanying him quite to his conclusions, so logical and inevitable is his progress. By the time we reach the specific instances which illustrate the power of "moral orthopedics," of "persuasion," and of "education of the reason," the successes chronicled there seem to the reader, as to the author, the inevitable result of the "psychotherapy" which he practices. The strong, optimistic tenor of the book, its simple, untechnical language, and the directness with which its philosophy is applied to life, make it capable of becoming a vital fact, not merely to physicians, but to every one who has pondered on the relations between the psychic and the physical -- to every one, indeed, who honestly desires to keep down the sum total of needless suffering in the world. That psychic disorders require psychic treatment, that many distressing and dangerous nervous disorders are purely or primarily psychic -- these are the theses for which the book contends, together with the obvious completion of the syllogism. It is safe to say that not a day passes in which any one fails of an opportunity to apply the principles set forth by Professor Dubois, and it is in the hope that the publication of his book may promote the seizing of these opportunities, as well as prove illuminating to some of the most prevalent problems of the practitioner, that the American edition has been produced"--Preface.
