William Benjamin Carpenter, 1813-1885
[Mentioned in Miscellaneous Writings, pp. 47, 48]
William Carpenter, English physician, teacher, and investigator, displayed the urgency of a philosopher in his pursuit of truth. His two most important books were "The Microscope" and "Human Physiology." In the latter he discussed mesmerism. Noting that the phenomena of hypnotism occurred only when the mind's volitional control was suspended, he placed great stress on the will and self-control. On a visit to the United States he gave two series of lectures in Boston, one on conditions of the deep sea and the other on human automatism. As an advocate of total abstinence he also delivered a lecture in Tremont Temple on "The Physiology of Alcoholism." He saw no conflict between religion and science, affirming, "Science is in the fullest harmony with all that is essential and true in Christianity."
