An Essay on Physiological Psychology

Churchill, 1858 - 94 páginas
"The following chapters on Physiological Psychology have appeared as a series of Papers in the "Journal of Psychological Medicine and Mental Pathology," edited by Forbes Winslow, M.D., D.C.L. Written at varying intervals amid the distractions of medical practice, I am sensibly aware that they bear too evident marks of needless repetitions, and of a want of unity in the treatment of the subject; and yet these were perhaps in a measure unavoidable, under the circumstances of their composition. There is reason, however, to believe that these papers have proved a stimulus to thought, and have roused into activity the energy of other minds of high endowments, possessing more leisure and better opportunities than I can command for successfully prosecuting such an interesting inquiry; and this belief has led to their republication in a separate form. Of the importance of the subject, and of its practical bearings upon Psychological Medicine, there can be no dispute, for surely it is on Mental Physiology, and a knowledge of the Correlations of Physiology and Psychology, that a rational and enlightened practice can alone be based. Besides and physiologically or psychologically considered, self-knowledge is equally important"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2010 APA, all rights reserved).
