Abstract : A series of studies is reported which attempts to clarify the nature of posthypnotic behavior. The extent to which the way in which one defines hypnosis may determine the kind of observations one makes. Many of the difficulties in communication arise from looking in different ways at different things which are called by the same name. Perhaps with more careful attention to details of definition and the precise circumstances of observation one may be able to clarify the kind of controversies that traditionally have been associated with the study of hypnosis.
