CHARCOT lui-même, un peu tardivement d'ailleurs, finit par se rendre compte, peu avant sa mort, que le terrain sur lequel il s'était engagé était fort peu solide, aussi prit-il la décision de reprendre dans son ensemble la question de l' hystérie et de l' hypnose.
CHARCOT était essentiellement neurologue, il n'était pas psychiatre; en tant que neurologue, il s'occupait de la physiologie de l'hypnotisé, de ses mouvements, de ses réflexes et il passait complètement à côté des phénomènes psychologiques. /histoire/biograph/charcot.htm   (1803 words)

To study the hysterics under his care, he learned the technique of hypnosis and soon became a master of the relatively new "science." Charcot believed that a hypnotized state was very similar to a bout of hysteria, and so he hypnotized his patients in order to induce and study their symptoms.
