An essay on the causes of the variety of complexion and figure in the human species by Samuel Stanhope Smith( Book )

1 edition published in 1810 in English and held by 124 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Although the following essay may seem, at first view, to propose nothing to itself but to amuse the public with a philosophical speculation; yet as its object is to establish the unity of the human species, by tracing its varieties to their natural causes, it has an obvious and intimate relation with religion, by bringing in science to confirm the verity of the Mosaic history. It has lately become a kind of cant with certain superficial smatterers in physical science to speak of revealed religion, and of the spirit of piety as being hostile to profound researches into nature, lest they should be found to contradict the dogmas of revelation. We see these men, likewise, with equal ignorance and vanity, contemptuously insinuate that the friends of piety are always ready to rest their opinions, not on well ascertained facts, but on the supposed authority of Heaven, to save them the pains, and the hazard of enquiries so dangerous to contented superstition. These self-dubbed naturalists, vain of their own faint shadow of knowledge, because they know so little, seem to have forgotten the existence of such men as Newton, or Boyle, Bacon or Mede, and a thousand others, equally distinguished for the depth of their enquiries into the mysteries of nature, and for their sublime and fervent piety towards its Author. Genuine philosophy has ever been found the friend of true religion. They are only spurious pretences to science which have wantonly arrayed themselves against the holy scriptures. In a question of that nature which is discussed in the following essay, I would be far from introducing the authority of religion to silence enquiry, and equally far would I be from making it a substitute for proof. I appeal to the evidence of facts, and to conclusions resulting from these facts which I trust every genuine disciple of nature will acknowledge to be legitimately drawn from her own fountain. From Natural Science, which has been cultivated with more than common ardor and success in the present age, she now forms her chief attacks against the doctrines, and the history of religion. And on this quarter she has pressed them with the greatest zeal. While others, therefore, are successfully defending the interior fortresses of religion, and extending her practical sway over the hearts of men, I thought that I might render a valuable service to the cause, by cooperating, in some degree, with those who are defending her outworks, and carrying their attacks into the enemy's camp"--Introduction.

"The substance of a considerable part of the following Lectures was addressed to the pupils of the Middlesex Hospital in the summer of 1847, and the form of lectures appeared to me to present advantages which led me to retain it, when I determined to publish the results of my observations on Children's Diseases. These observations were made in the large field presented by the Children's Infirmary, which was first thrown open to me in the year 1839, by the kindness of my friend Dr. Willis, then physician to that institution; to which office I succeeded on his resignation in 1842. Very nearly 14,000 children have thus been brought under my notice during the past nine years; and I have kept accurate notes of the diseases of 600, as well as of the results of 180 dissections of cases in which those diseases terminated fatally. The time that has elapsed since the appearance of these Lectures in the Medical Gazette, has been too short to allow me, in preparing them for separate publication, to do much toward supplying those deficiencies in them of which I am fully sensible. If life and health be spared me, it will be my constant endeavor to render these imperfections less numerous. I trust they may be not of a nature to detract seriously from the usefulness of the work; still less of a kind to lead into error those to whom it has been my earnest wish to prove myself a faithful guide"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2009 APA, all rights reserved) "The Third Edition of these Lectures contains the results of 750 observations, and 240 post-mortem examinations, chiefly made among 20,000 children who have come under my care, either at the Infirmary for Children, in Lambeth, or at the Hospital for Sick Children"--Foreword.

Essays on life, sleep, pain, etc. by Samuel Henry Dickson( Book )

8 editions published between 1852 and 2012 in English and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In the following pages, the attempt has been made to engage the attention of the intelligent reader in the discussion of subjects usually, though erroneously, regarded as of technical rather than of universal interest. This exclusive character has become attached to them more from the manner in which they have been presented, than from anything in their own nature; and they are here brought forward in a point of view which, if somewhat novel, will, it is hoped, be found as generally acceptable as it is rational and obvious. The essays examine life, sleep, pain, intellection, hygiene, and death." (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2009 APA, all rights reserved)
