Seite 49 - With this view of the subject, it is not, 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 53 - THE family of children, where one of the parents had been similarly affected ; and this is true to so great an extent, that I have very commonly seen the same tooth, and even the same part of the tooth, affected in several individuals of the family, and at about the same age. In other instances, where there are many children, amongst whom there exists a distinct division into two portions, some resembling the father, and others the mother, in features and constitution, I have observed a corresponding...
Seite 50 - Those animals,, whose teeth and digestive apparatus most nearly resemble our own, namely, the apes and monkeys, are undoubtedly frugivorous ; but as, from their organization, they are necessarily tropical animals, and without the gift of reason, by which they might have overcome the 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,...
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 11 - HE importance of the Teeth is such, that they deserve our utmost attention, as well with respect to the preservation of them, when in a healthy state, as to the methods of curing them, when diseased. They require this attention, not only for the preservation of themselves, as instruments useful to the body, but also on account of other parts with which they are connected...
Seite 48 - ... requirements of man. This high and divine endowment should never be lost sight of in our reasonings on the human structure, and the physiology and habits of our species ; as it is only with the allowances and modifications, which the possession of a quality so infinitely higher than the instinct of other animals necessarily supposes, that the actual habits of man can be viewed as compatible with his organization. Although these habits, — now essentially arising from, and combined with, a state...
Seite 6 - ... the remotest connexion with it. It not unfrequently happens that parts the most remote become the apparent seat of pain, from the exposure of the nerve 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 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 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 23 - Chess-Player, which seems for a time to have puzzled all the philosophers and mathematicians of Europe, 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 mou ami;" " Je vous aime de tout mon cceur.
