Belief in spiritualism was, back in the 19th century, rather widespread among socialists, particularly in the UK and US, so much so, that Friedrich Engels was moved to write an essay debunking spiritualism, "Natural Science and the Spirit World" (http://www.marxists.org/archive/marx/works/1883/don/ch10.htm). Many years later it was published as part of his Dialectics of Nature.

Alfred Russell Wallace was also a devoted spiritualist, in addition to be a
brilliant researcher and thinker.

American radicals going to London visited him and he toured here at least
once...slipping away to meet with his like minded friends.
