In this book, the author describes the mental state of hystericals. It is argued that hysteria is largely a mental malady--a feature that must not be neglected if it is to be understood and treated. The general nature of the phenomena, their variations, their changeable conditions, and the symptoms which are manifested in hysterical patients are examined. This work is a synopsis of psychological observations made upon hysterical patients, and brought together for the purpose of comparative study. The author hopes to make some contribution, however slight, to the study of hysteria, and to add new proofs to the conception of the unity of the hysterical malady which has been long maintained by the most eminent clinicians.
