Excerpt from Elements of Physiology: Being an Account of the Laws and Principles of the Animal Economy, Especially in Reference to the Constitution of Man

A knowledge of the structure of the human body cannot but be considered by every cultivated, intel ligent, and inquiring mind, as a most desirable ao quisition. In tracing the many curious contrivances which are exhibited in its organization, in perceiving the admirable adaptation of its parts to the perfor mance of their varied offices, and in Viewing the whole series of its organs in. Their mutual relation and subserviency, one exercises the highest faculties of his mind, and acquires information that may be useful in life. Indeed, so obvious is the importance of an acquaintance with the mechanism of our bodily frame, that one, viewing the subject in a general sense, might naturally wonder why Anatomy and Physiology are not considered as indispensable ele ments of educatioh.
