E. W. Cox

          Serjeant-at-LAW, well-known psychical investigator in the days preceding the foundation of the SPR, assisted Crookes in his first experiments with D. D. Home, suggested the term "psychic force," published a booklet Spiritualism Scientifically Examined with Proofs of the Existence of a Psychic Force in 1872 and an elaborate work in 1874 under the title What Am I? A Popular Introduction to Mental Physiology and Psychology. He did not accept the spirit hypothesis. For the purpose of systematic research into the mystery of psychic phenomena he founded, in 1875, the Psychological Society for Great Britain. After his death in 1879 the society dissolved.
