INDEX OF AUTHORS

sharing all these good things,'" (P. Janet, "La Maladie du 

Scrupule," _Revue Philosophique_, May, 1901, p. 502.) The 

deviations of the instinct of nutrition are, however, confined 

within narrow limits, and, in the nature of things, hunger, 

unlike sexual desire, cannot easily accept a fetich. 

 

"There is almost no feature, article of dress, attitude, act," Stanley 

Hall declares, "or even animal or perhaps object in nature, that may not 

have to some morbid soul specialized erogenic and erethic power."[6] Even 

a mere shadow may become a fetich. Goron tells of a merchant in Paris--a 

man with a reputation for ability, happily married and the father of a 

family, altogether irreproachable in his private life--who was returning 

home one evening after a game of billiards with a friend, when, on 

chancing to raise his eyes, he saw against a lighted window the shadow of 

a woman changing her chemise. He fell in love with that shadow and 

returned to the spot every evening for many months to gaze at the window. 

Yet--and herein lies the fetichism--he made no attempt to see the woman or 

to find out who she was; the shadow sufficed; he had no need of the 

realty.[7] It is even possible to have a negative fetich, the absence of 

some character being alone demanded, and the case has been recorded in 

Chicago of an American gentleman of average intelligence, education, and 

good habits who, having as a boy cherished a pure affection for a girl 

whose leg had been amputated, throughout life was relatively impotent with 

normal women, but experienced passion and affection for women who had lost 

a leg; he was found by his wife to be in extensive correspondence with 

one-legged women all over the country, expending no little money on the 

purchase of artificial legs for his various protegees.[8]
