Excerpt from An Introduction to Human Physiology I have written this book with a distinct consciousness that physiology in a medical school is, in conjunction with anatomy, the introduction to medicine and to surgery of those who will engage in 'general practice, ' and I hope that the volume may be found to justify its title of 'Human Physiology' with reference to the position which the subject should occupy in medical education, as the junction to which anatomy, chemistry, and physics converge, and from which the principles of medicine and of surgery diverge. Physiology does not consist in a knowledge of recondite phenomena, of difficult names, and of complicated instruments. It should fundamentally consist in the living mental picture of what the great organs below a mans skin are like, what they are doing, how they can be examined, what happens when they are not working properly, how their actions hang together, how they may be influenced for good and for evil. But physiology, as it is written, contains more than this, and, in sparing measure, it is well that the 'Institutes of Medicine' should not be restricted to the visibly 'useful, ' or to the obviously 'utilisable.'
