Journal of Mental Science. XCII, 1946: The Epilepsy of Fyodor Dostoievski. H. Harris. Pp. 364–369.

A brief discussion of Dostoievski's epilepsy follows an account of some facts about his life. Harris concludes that Dostoievski's religious mysticism originated in the same way as the religiosity of the average epileptic, i.e., from the particular character of his emotional experiences. However, though his guilt, mysticism and character structure are mentioned, no correlation between them and his life experiences is drawn. Freud's and other psychoanalytic writings are not cited.
