OF THE RELATION OF
MIND AND BRAIN
Author of " Iconology," " Marston Brothers," &c., &c.
“Men are governed by custom; not one of a thousand thinks for himself;
The following short treatise was originally delivered in the form of two lectures to the “Glasgow Psychological Society.” It is a work, therefore, more suggestive than exhaustive—its principal aim being to show the insufficiency of any physiological theory to explain the co-relation of mind and brain. This is a subject of vast importance, and ought to be studied calmly, earnestly, and perseveringly, unhampered by any preconceptions.
I need scarcely add that the subject is as difficult as it is vast is even mysterious at every stepand has puzzled the greatest minds in all ages; yet let us hope that it is not insolvable, but that ere long we shall be able to explain in a satisfactory manner the various phases of mental phenomena, and their material correlate, if such relation there is.
