Strana 9 - Hence the vagueness and uncertainty our science presents at this day. An incoherent assemblage of incoherent opinion.*, it is, perhaps. of all the physiological sciences, that which best shows the caprice of the human mind. What do I say ? It is not a science for a methodical mind. It is a shapeless assemblage of inaccurate ideas, of observations often puerile, of deceptive remedies, and of formulae as fantastically conceived as they are tediously arranged.

Strana 253 - It is a mistaken notion' says he, '.that it is too warm a clothing for summer.
