Studies in Historical Replication in Psychology IV: An Inquiry into the Psychological Research and Life of Gertrude Stein
Sirrine, Nicole K.; McCarthy, Shauna K.
Science & Education, v17 n5 p493-509 May 2008
Gertrude Stein (1874-1946) is well known as an early twentieth century writer, but less well known is her involvement in automatic writing research. Critics of Stein's literary works suggest that her research had a significant influence on her poetry and fiction, though Stein denied any influence. A partial replication of Stein's 1896 study was conducted with the goal of addressing three historical questions: (1) What contributed to Stein's involvement in automatic writing research?; (2) To what extent did Stein believe that she experienced automatic writing?; and (3) To what extent did her automatic writing research influence her later literary works?
