5 - - Animal Magnetism Unmasked
In 1837, a committee of nine persons was appointed,
among whom were Roux, Bouillaud, and Cloquet,
which tested during several sessions the
phenomena exhibited by a reputed clairvoyant. Their
report stated the results as follows:
"The facts which had been promised by Monsieur
Berna [the magnetizer] as conclusive, and as adapted to
throw light on physiological and therapeutical questions,
are certainly not conclusive in favor of the doctrine of
animal magnetism, and have nothing in common with
either physiology or therapeutics."
This report was adopted by the Royal Academy of
Medicine in Paris.
