Chapters on Mental Physiology
"Some explanation is necessary of the title and plan of this volume, that the reader may rightly apprehend not only the objects proposed, but also the method adopted to fulfil them. The title will be understood as expressing that particular part of Human Physiology, which comprises the reciprocal actions and relations of mental and bodily phenomena, as they make up the totality of life. I need not dwell on the great interest of this subject. It is attested, as every part of this volume will show, not solely by the natural and healthy conditions of existence, but even more remarkably by those of disorder and disease. Scarcely can we name a morbid affection of body in which some feeling or function of mind is not concurrently engaged--directly or indirectly--as cause or as effect. No physician can rightly fulfil his duties without an adequate knowledge of, and constant regard to, these important relations"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2009 APA, all rights reserved).
