Excerpt from The Journal of Jurisprudence, 1878, Vol. 22
The use of the term science in popular language is extremely loose. Nor is this laxity confined to the vulgar, for several writers of eminence seem in their works to ignore the distinction between. Science and Art. For example, we have a well-known book on surgery, entitled The Science and Art of Surge being a Treatise on Surgical Injuries, Diseases, and Operations. And yet in the preface, Surgery is stated to be a department of the healing art. There is no doubt the preface is right, and the title-page is wrong. Surgery is an art which derives assistance from anatomy, physiology, pathology, chemistry, and other sciences.
