This is the fourth, revised and expanded 1850 edition of an
influential two-volume work originally published in 1830 by the
German scientist and philosopher Gotthilf Heinrich von Schubert
(1780-1860). Schubert studied theology and medicine, and taught
natural history at Erlangen and Munich, specialising in botany,
forestry and mineralogy. He also lectured on topics including
animal magnetism, clairvoyance and dreams, and attempted to
reconcile Enlightenment philosophy with Christian faith. This book
sets out Schubert's views on human nature as body, soul and spirit,
and on humankind's place in the natural order. Volume 2 focuses
mainly on the 'soul', which Schubert differentiates from the
'spirit' that clothes and feeds it. The discussion ranges from
hypnosis and clairvoyance to moods and feelings, passions and
affects, the unconscious and personality disorders. Schubert refers
frequently to Classical and early Christian philosophers as he
probes phenomena now assigned to psychology, including cognition
