Synopsis

Though clearly prepared for the press, this work was not published by Swedenborg. It was written in 1741-2. The work treats of the medullary fibre of the brain, the nerve fibres of the body, the arachnoid tunic, and diseases of the fibre. The latter part treats of both physical and psychological pathology. Particularly important philosophically is a 30-page section on Swedenborg's doctrine of forms, a crucial doctrine in his causal theory. This edition also includes Author and Subject Indexes.
