Seite 49 - I think, going too far to say, that every fact connected with the human organization goes to prove, that man was originally formed a frugivorous animal, and therefore, probably, tropical or nearly so, with regard to his geographical situation. This opinion is principally derived from the formation of his teeth and digestive organs, as well as from the character of his skin, and the general structure of his limbs.
Seite 11 - The importance of the Teeth is such, that they deserve* our utmost attention, as well with respect to the preservation of them, when in an healthy state, as to the methods of curing them, when diseased. They require this attention, not only for the preservation of themselves...
Seite 23 - Kempelen, the inventor of the automaton chessplayer, also constructed a speaking automaton, in which he ultimately succeeded so far as to make it pronounce several sentences, among the best of which were, "Romanorum imperator semper Augustus ;" " Leopoldus secundus ;" " Vous etes mon ami ;" " Je vous aime de tout mon cceur.
Seite 24 - ... action and construction to the human mouth with its teeth; when he succeeded not only in making it pronounce the consonants, but words, and even the sentences quoted above. He had previously imitated the tongue and its actions. The fact is interesting, not only as a rare instance of human ingenuity, but also as exhibiting in a most striking light the beautiful adaptation of parts to their respective functions, and that so perfect are the contrivances...
Seite 47 - The opinion which I venture to give has not been hastily formed, nor without what appeared to me sufficient grounds. It is not, I think, going too far to say, that every fact connected with human organization goes to prove that man was originally formed a frugivorous animal, and therefore probably tropical, or nearly so, in his geographical situation.
Seite 56 - ... neighbouring parts will form a subject for separate consideration, it is unnecessary here to do more than to mention that it often happens, after the lapse of a considerable period subsequent to the constitution having been saturated with mercury, that the teeth begin to evince a general tendency to decay. To the profuse administration of this remedy in tropical diseases we may, I think, in a great measure, attribute the injury which a residence in hot climates so frequently inflicts on the teeth.
Seite 50 - ... difference of temperature by artificial means, they remain still restricted to their original food, and confined to the very limited climate to which their structure peculiarly adapted them. The reasoning powers of man, on the contrary, have enabled him to set climate at defiance, and have rendered him, in all cases, more or less an artificial being. No longer restrained within that range of temperature to which the delicacy of his frame, no less than the nature of his original nutriment would...
Seite 56 - ... of cases they become diseased in pairs; for in whatever changes the constitution may suffer at that period, the teeth, then in the progress of their formation, would naturally participate, and would be rendered more or less liable to disease, in proportion to the injury thus inflicted on them. Upon the period, therefore, at which these constitutional disorders take place, it will, to a certain degree, depend which teeth shall be most predisposed to decay. Amongst the remote causes, or those which...
Seite 6 - ... of a tooth. I have seen this occur not only in the face, over the scalp, in the ear, or underneath the lower jaw, but down the neck, over the shoulder, and along the whole length of the arm.
Seite 46 - FROM the foregoing view of the nature and offices of the different classes of the teeth, it appears that their structure and uses are more perfectly equalized in the human subject, than in any other animal. It is true that, in some tribes of animals, whose habits require the greatest possible extension of the office of a particular class of teeth, a corresponding development of that class is found to take place, to a much greater degree than in man. Thus, in the carnivora, the cuspidati are greatly...
