Man's Relentless Search
More Information

Now, for two thousand years he held one of the more interesting ideas. He said that there was such a thing as a human soul. Well, that was pretty close to the truth. So that went a long way.

But when they tried to use this as a control mechanism, this discovery of the spirit, it corroded and people rather fell away from it. And some people went so far away from it as to completely negate the whole subject.

He finally stopped the search entirely. And this happened at an exact, specific date. It happened at Leipzig, Germany, in 1879. The whole thing came to a dull, grinding halt. And psychology, which is the study of the human psyche, which is Greek for “spirit,” became a study of physiology (which deals with physical organisms).
