Freud as a psychical researcher
#1
Courtesy of the SPR Facebook page, here is an English version (published in Imago Budapest  Huh ) of a French article which appeared last year in Bulletin de psychologie. The English version is by Renaud Evrard, Claudie Massicotte and Thomas Rabeyron, and is entitled "Freud as a psychical researcher: The impossible Freudian legacy":

I found that article quite interesting and informative, as I had only the vaguest ideas about Freud's attitude to the paranormal. Evidently he became convinced of the reality of telepathy, but mainly on the evidence of the rather poorly controlled experiments of Gilbert Murray. Freud believed he had replicated Murray's results, though without reporting in sufficient detail for the quality of the replication to be clear. Subsequently, his disciples were embarrassed by his belief in the paranormal, but there is a suggestion that the free response aspect of the Maimonides dream studies reflected Montague Ullman's background as a psychoanalyst.
