Summary
"The reception which the first volume of this treatise experienced, could leave no doubt in my mind as to the necessity of completing the work; and I lament that certain circumstances, which were unavoidable, have delayed for so long a period the publication of the second part. As, however, the circumstances to which I allude no longer exist. I may indulge a hope that the third volume will succeed the present at a considerably shorter interval. I have, as nearly as possible, pursued the same method of giving an account of the best established facts, and the most approved hypotheses; freely offering my remarks upon them, and pointing out any part which appeared to be objectionable. I have, however, found it a very difficult task to arrive at any satisfactory conclusion, with respect to many of the topics that are discussed in this volume. For, singular as it may appear, although most of them profess to be established on the basis of direct experiments, and such as would appear not to be of very difficult execution, yet we shall find that every step of the track through which I have had to pass, is on debatable ground. On this account, I have frequently felt it necessary to dissent from the opinions of the most eminent physiologists of the age; but when I have done this I have given my reason for the dissent; and I trust that I have, in no instance, gone beyond that candid criticism, which it is necessary to exercise on all scientific topics. I beg to repeat the request with which I conclude the preface to my former volume, that my readers will use towards me the same liberty which I have used towards others; that they will, without reserve, point out all the errors and imperfections which may be found in the work. I have thought it, upon the whole, more advisable to defer the notice of these remarks until the publication of my third and concluding volume; as by this means I shall have the advantage of another year's experience, an advantage which is of no small moment in a science so rapidly progressive as that of Physiology"--Preface.
