Professor James at the Foxcroft Club.
Professor James gave a talk upon the Relation of the facts of Spiritualism to Religion before the Foxcroft Club last evening. He referred to the mass of material which the Society for Psychical Research have laboriously collected and sifted and stated that in his opinion these facts must no longer be neglected by the scientific man. The popular mind demands facts and objects to which it may pin its belief; miracles no longer furnish such realities. In the religion which 50 years or so hence will be grasped by the popular mind will be this necessity for something to take the place of these old objects. Why may not these facts be those of modern spiritualism? Thus the investigation of these phenomena, sharing as it does with all departments of science much drudgery, beckons the imaginative student into a wholly unsearched field.
