The mission of Science is to study and sound everything. All of us, according to our degree, are the creditors of investigation; We are its debtors also. It is due to us, and we owe it to others. To evade a phenomenon, to refuse to pay it that attention to which it has a right, to bow it out, to show it the door, to turn our back on it laughing, is to make truth a bankrupt, and to leave the Signature of Science to be protested. The phenomenon of the tripod of old, and of the table of today, is entitled, like anything else, to investigation. Psychic science will gain by it, without doubt. Let us add, that to abandon phenomena to credulity, is to commit treason against human reason. 

William Shakespeare by Victor Hugo
