His contribution of the construction of this idea, while purely psychological, was developed and nurtured in the context of psychic investigations, as were the psychological ideas of Myers, and to some extent, those of others such as Janet and Richet.

Nineteenth century pioneers in the study of dissociation: William James and psychical research. Journal of Consciousness Studies , , 17 , Piper represents a break with Janet and other conventional explorers of dissociation. It was in fact a plea to study and accept the possibility that dissociation and consciousness in general could transcend bodily limitations. Piper: Classic Text No. As stated in the abstract:.
Piper — The article, an indication of late nineteenth-century interactions between dissociation studies and psychical research, was the first report of research with Mrs Piper, a widely investigated medium of great importance for the development of mediumship studies.

In my first paper exploring the contributions of psychical research to psychology I focused on the work early members of the Society for Psychical Research conducted regarding dissociation. Because I wanted to inform contemporary dissociation researchers, I sent the paper to dissociation journal Dissociation in Britain during the late nineteenth century: The Society for Psychical Research, Journal of Trauma and Dissociation, 3 , Apart from the fact that psychical research deserves serious consideration, we need to realize that in the context of nineteenth-century developments this field made important contributions to the study of dissociation and to the development of the idea of a secondary self.
I continued to explore dissociation in other articles.

Mediumship, psychical research, dissociation, and the powers of the subconscious mind.
Journal of Parapsychology , , 78 , 98— I wrote in the conclusion of this paper:. Nonetheless, and as seen in the writings of some such as James. Along the way, Robinson convinces the reader that 'the view of reason and appetite as opposing forces is as old as the Homeric epics and as current as psychoanalytic theory. Convinced that 'psychology is the history of ideas, ' Robinson treats every idea and every sentence with critical respect, making this a standard-setting book that is also a pleasure to read.
