That its full significance may be understood by the average reader, I have avoided as far as possible all technical expressions and references.The book presupposes some little knowledge of Spiritism, but not to such an extent as to prevent the ordinary man from understanding the argument and conclusion. It seeks to define just what psychical phenomena are, and then discusses the advantages and disadvantages of the various theories offered to explain these phenomena. It is a brief treatise. It does not pretend to be exhaustive. If Our Lord wills that it be profitable to some, I shall be satisfied.Feci quod potui, faciant majora potentes.I did what I could, let the powerful do more.C.
