The new acceptance of animal magnetism in Germany renews his interest in its possible implication for those who, like himself, are apologists for the Christian religion. He studies and lectures on ancient philosophy, including Stoicism and Epicureanism, attempting to read contemporary—especially Kantian—thinking in the light of what is to be learnt from the new developments in human thought.

Keywords: Plato; Kant; stoicism; epicureanism; symbol; animal; magnetism; oracles; Blumenbach; Cuvier
