Automatic Writing 1915

The American Journal of Psychology
April 1915

Another experimental attempt to induces automatic writing. The experiments are similar to those of Solomons and Stein: person attempts to write while distracted by reading. Actual content of writing is from memory or from dictation. Pretty boring, only interesting part is that they come closer to automatic reading then writing; they reported lapses of conscience during act of reading and rarely during that of writing. Also it doesn’t seem that they are even using the right approach, instead of the writing coming from the subconscience they rely on conscience memory or external dictation. No champs magnétiques.
