Hypnosis and Suggestibility
By Clark L Hull
This volume, first printed in 1933 helped shape the evolution of hypnosis. Today's clinicians and researchers owe much of what they currently do to the work of Clark Hull. He was a pioneer and explorer, searching for the means to make behaviorism - and a behavioral view of hypnosis, an exact science. In 1923, Milton H. Erickson, a second year undergraduate student, was at the University of Wisconsin where Hull was lecturing about hypnosis. It was an event that would change his life and would eventually influence the direction of the entire field of hypnosis. The rigors associated with the kinds of scientific experimental methods described by Hull in this book have never been more relevant or timely. - adapted from the new introduction by Michael D. Yapko, Ph.D.
