Seite 189 - Secretaries of all medical organizations are requested to forward lists of their Delegates as soon as elected, to the Permanent Secretary. Any respectable physician who may desire to attend, but cannot...
Seite 401 - Physiologically, we cannot choose but reject the will : volition we know, and will we know, but the will, apart from particular acts of volition or will, we cannot know. To interpose such a metaphysical entity between reflection and action thereupon, would bring us logically to the necessity of interposing a similar entity between the stimulus to the spinal cord and its reaction. Thus, instead of unravelling the complex by help of the more simple, we should obscure the simple by speculations concerning...
Seite 460 - Idiocy is, indeed, a manufactured article ; and, although we are not always able to tell how it is manufactured, still its important causes are known and are within control.

Seite 465 - Whence come the savage snarl, the destructive disposition, the obscene language, the wild howl, the offensive habits, displayed by some of the insane ? Why should a human being deprived of his reason ever become so brutal in character as some do, unless he has the brute nature within him...
Seite 498 - He holds that there is among criminals a distinct and incurable criminal class, marked by peculiar low physical and mental characteristics; that crime is hereditary in the families of criminals belonging to this class; and that this hereditary crime is a disorder of mind, having close relations of nature and descent to epilepsy, dipsomania, insanity, and other forms of degeneracy. Such criminals are really morbid varieties, and often exhibit marks of physical degeneration — spinal deformities,...
