Abstract

Theater was at the heart of the life and works of French psychologist Alfred Binet (1857–1911). Prior to his involvement in writing and staging plays with the dramatist André de Lorde (1869–1942), the famous inventor of the first metric scale of intelligence had, in fact, conducted an extensive psychological study on the doubling of personalities experienced by actors and dramatic authors. By returning to his psychological and dramatic works, and detailing the links between them, this article intends to show how Binet made theater into the veritable laboratory of his scientific psychology.
