About this title


Excerpt from Second Book in Physiology and Hygiene

In the preparation of this volume the aim of the author has been to present only such facts as are of practical value, and to arrange these facts in a natural and logical order.

Those portions of the work devoted to Anatomy have been made as untechnical as possible. The author sees no advantage in burdening the student with Greek and Latin names for which he has no practical use. In accordance with this view, anatomical names have been used very sparingly. The aim has been to teach things rather than names; and only such anatomical facts have been presented as are necessary to a proper understanding of the leading functions of the body.

From the vast store of facts comprised in the modern science of physiology, the author has endeavored to select only those which are essential to an understanding of the "reason why" in respect to the hygienic precepts inculcated in those portions of the work devoted to hygiene. Nevertheless, it is believed that the work will be found to contain a more complete statement of the established truths of modern physiology than any other work of its class, as an effort has been made to bring within the comprehension of the student a considerable number of important facts which have been usually omitted in school text-books upon this subject. This is particularly true as regards the functions of digestion and the physiology of the nervous system. It is believed that experienced teachers will find the manner in which these subjects are developed of great service in clearing away the difficulties which they ordinarily present to the average student.
