Seite 40 - ... to establish a defence on the ground of insanity, it must be clearly proved that at the time of the committing of the act the party accused was laboring under such a defect of reason, from disease of the mind, as not to know the nature and quality of the act he was doing; or, if he did know it, that he did not know he was doing what was wrong.
Seite 38 - ... it is not every kind of frantic humor or something unaccountable in a man's actions, that points him out to be such a madman rs is to be exempted from punishment ; it must be a man that is totally deprived of his understanding and memory, and doth not know what he is doing, no more than an infant, than a brute, or a wild beast...

Seite 79 - On the opposite side, of late years, have been some who incline to a very different view, thinking that they find cogent reasons for placing fibrin on the same scale as the extractive matters, and for reckoning it among those elements which have arisen in the blood from its own decay, or have reverted to it from the waste of the tissues.* I may confess that, to my mind, this appears infinitely the more plausible view, and I will tell you the arguments which induce me to adopt it.

Seite 39 - ... presumption. The first result, therefore, to which the doctrine leads, is, that no man can ever successfully plead insanity in defence of crime, because it can be said of no one, who would have occasion for such a defence, that he was unable in any case to distinguish right from wrong.
Seite 39 - ... it must be proved beyond all doubt, that at the time he committed the atrocious act with which he stood charged, he did not consider that murder was a crime against the laws of God and nature ; and that there was no other proof of insanity which would excuse murder, or any other crime.
Seite 179 - Nothing can be more clear than that it is the duty of the patient to co-operate with his professional adviser and to conform to the necessary prescriptions, but if he will not, or under the pressure of pain cannot, his neglect is his own wrong or misfortune, for which he has no right to hold his surgeon responsible. No man may take advantage of his own wrong or charge his misfortune to the count of another.
Seite 39 - ... object which it may help to obtain, and which they see no reason to refrain from pursuing, is viewed, in fact, as of a highly laudable and meritorious nature. Herein, then, consists their insanity, not in preferring vice to virtue, in applauding crime and...
