Excerpt from Human Physiology: The Basis of Sanitary and Social Science
I have written this book to show that the Law of Life for man is written in his organisation that we have but to study the physical nature of man to know the conditions of health, the causes of disease, the means of preventing diseases, and the best methods of cure; that, in the same way, we have but to understand his moral nature, his social requirements, and the constitution of his mind, in order that we may know the moral, social, and educational conditions most conducive to his wel fare and happiness. That is, I have endeavoured to prove the proposition laid down in 'my title - that Human Physiology is the true basis of Sanitary and Social Science.
But why, it may be asked, is it necessary to write a volume of nearly five hundred pages to demonstrate and illustrate a self-evident proposition? Of course, the law of every creature's life is written in its organisation. It is true of every plant, every animal, and must therefore be true 01 man. We have only to understand his whole nature to see its adaptations, and the modes of life and activity, the manners and morals, govern ment and society, education and religion, that will best suit his requirements.
