Summary

Originally published in 1890 by Madame Blavatsky, this paper serves as part defense of and part biography of Franz Anton Mesmer. She discusses how science disavows magic while at the same time adopting and renaming identical concepts. She writes of the relationship between hypnotism and mesmerism, as well as how both were looked at within the scientific and occult communities across Europe at the time.
