Hypnotism and Its Legal Import (Classic Reprint)

Gurston S Allen

Excerpt from Hypnotism and Its Legal Import If a person could only be hypnotized with his consent, it would follow that every time he was in a state of hypnosis, he incurred ipso facto a certain responsibility to society, for having surrendered the conscious control of his will. If, however, a person could be hypnotized against his will, he would not incur such responsibility merely from the fact that he was in the state of hypnosis. It is important to understand this before we can really appreciate the relation of this part. Of the problem of hypnosis to crime.
