Pelmanism: Lesson I to VI – The Pelman Institute

R600.00

“Pelmanism was a system of brain training which was popular in the United Kingdom during the first half of the twentieth century.

Originally devised as a memory system in the 1890s by William Joseph Ennever, the system was taught via correspondence from the Pelman Institute in London (named after Christopher Louis Pelman). It was advertised as a system of scientific mental training which strengthened and developed one’s mind just as physical training strengthened your body. It was developed to expand “Mental Powers in every direction” and “remove those tendencies to indolence and inefficiency”.

In the context of modern psychology, Pelmanism may have only limited academic interest today. It remains of interest as a self-help tool, but is seen by some as quirky and eccentric.”
