"I have here given you what I had long promised, the Pathology of the Brain and Nervous Stock , and with it the previous Physical Meditations of the Soul of the Brutes, which is that inferior one of Man. This difficult task, when at first denied leisure and retirement it could not be performed; after the Death of my Dear Wife, being lonely, with frequent and unseasonable Studies that I might the less think on my Grief I have at last finished this, according to my slender capacity. But indeed in these Disquisitions (which the Anatomy of the Brain and its Appendixes, hath lately and more exactly shown) as we have entered into a by-way, and not before trodden, there was a necessity to lead thee, through some sharp and stony ways, beset with bushes and thorns, which might offend thee"--Preface.
