Bekhterev "Mass psychosis"

Vladimir Mikhailovich Bekhterev (1857-1927), an outstanding Russian physiologist, psychiatrist, psychologist, creator of reflexology - an original natural science theory of behavior that made a significant contribution to the development of the human sciences. A book is included in this edition. Suggestion and its role in public life, where the essence of suggestion as a mental phenomenon, the mechanisms of the emergence of mental epidemics and the role of various types of suggestion in their origin and distribution during crisis situations in society are revealed, as well as articles thematically related to this work.

Friends, this book is purely the author's view of the trance state. Throughout the reading, the book contains a theoretical understanding of the nature of suggestion. There is no exercise here. Some thoughts and ideas. As a red thread, Bekhterev carries the following thought: "with the disappearance of the I, any suggestion occurs easily, without recognition and without criticism." It is read dry, somewhat difficult. There are a lot of examples of psychic epidemics, suggestions of mystical teachings, examples of suggestions in case of panic.
