Excerpt from The Law of Human Increase: Or, Population Based on Physiology and Psychology
The method adopted by these writers, resembles very much the course which metaphysicians formerly pursued in discussing the faculties of the mind, as though they had no fixed connection whatever with the body, or particular dependence upon the brain. On this account that most important study, the science of mind, or mental philosophy, has, within the last fifty years, been passing through many changes, or a kind of transition state; so that, at the present time, those treatises recognizing an intimate connection of mind with body are more generally accepted, and regarded as presenting truths founded upon a natural Thasis.
