The work gives the plan which has been followed in teaching pathology in the Harvard Medical School, and which has proven to be successful. The central feature is that opportunity shall be given the student to acquire knowledge of the subject by the exercise of his own powers. To this end laboratory work embracing the study of the gross and the microscopic changes in the tissues and organs and the alterations in function produced by disease, is made the main feature. This work is supplemented by lectures which have the object not of conveying new information, but of expanding and coordinating the knowledge which the student himself has acquired.Illustrations were purposely omitted in the work. Excellent and accurate as are most of the illustrations in the current textbooks of Pathology, they still, when objective, represent areas carefully selected for the illustration of a point, more commonly being the authors interpretations. It is much better that the student should make his own illustrations from the objects studied. Drawing is a mode of expression too often neglected. It helps enormously in accuracy of observation, and by a drawing the student often can convey his conception of an object more clearly than by writing. Blank leaves are inserted after the various chapters, on which the student should make notes of conditions observed, and illustrate these with original drawings. In this way he will contribute to the creation of a book which will be of value to him, the most valuable portion being his own contribution.In the text there is considerable difference in the fullness with which the various subjects have been treated. This is particularly true in regard to the treatment of the infectious diseases and the special pathology of organs.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
