PREFACE.

Two or three things remain to be emphasised in this place. The first is that none of my illustrations of unconscious memory in disease are psychological. The second is that, although the illustrations chosen are drawn from a wide field, they are advisedly restricted in number; I should not wish, therefore, to be held as applying the principle of morbid habit and alterative cure beyond the limits specified or suggested in the text. Lastly, there is nothing new in details of treatment, but merely a new reading or rationale of

everyday practice. That an exposition of treatment thus restricted in scope may still be practical, is affirmed by Sydenham: "Etenim in eo praecipue stat Medicina Practica, ut genuinas indicationes expiscari valeamus, non ut remedia excogitemus, quibus illis satisfieri possit ; quod qui minus observabant, empericos armis instruxere, quibus Medicorum opera imitari queant.”
