The past decade has witnessed a remarkable revival of popular interest in philosophical mysticism and in spirituaU sm. A long with this revival has gone a spread of the so-called newer psychology ofF reud and his satellites, which, beginning in the medical field, now claims the whole arena of human activities. The spiritualistic developments have been, by various authors, attributed to the war; and perhaps the war, with its profound mental and spiritual upheavals, may have contributed to them. The simultaneous developments in the hoary cult of philosophical mysticism, and the newer cult ofF reudianism nevertheless indicate that the movements have derived their impietus only in small part from the events of the last few years, but are the expressions of forces which have been much longer in their releasing, and depend on deeply implanted principles of human nature. To show that it is no mere curious accident which leads booksellers to shelve together books on these three topics, is in part the purpose of the present volume.
