Excerpt from The Western Lancet, 1844, Vol. 3
If uncertainty exists in medicine, what are its sources, and to what extent does that uncertainty operate?
We hope to adjust with some degree Of philosophical precision the rel ative extent, and the several kinds, of certainty and uncertainty which attach to medical science, and the discussion will, we trust, produce an increased conviction in your minds that firm reliance may be reposed in the lights and resources of the science of medicine.
