"All diseases originate in the exuberance, deficiency, or retrograde action, of the faculties of the sensorium, as their proximate cause; and consist in the disordered motions of the fibres of the body, as the proximate effect of the exertions of those disordered faculties. The sensorium possesses four distinct powers, or faculties, which are occasionally exerted, and produce all the motions of the fibrous parts of the body; these are the faculties of producing fibrous motions in consequence of irritation, which is excited by external bodies; in consequence of sensation, which is excited by pleasure or pain; in consequence of volition, which is excited by desire or aversion; and in consequence of association, which is excited by other fibrous motions. We are hence supplied with four natural classes of diseases derived from their proximate causes; which we shall term those of irritation, those of sensation, those of volition, and those of association. In the subsequent classification of diseases I have not adhered to the methods of any of those who have preceded me; the principal of whom are the great names of Sauvages and Cullen; but have nevertheless availed myself, as much as I could, of their definitions and distinctions"--Preface.

This study of Erasmus Darwin (1731-1802) brings from semi-obscurity a man who was anything but obscure in his own day. Famous as the finest doctor of his time, a best-selling poet, and a prolific inventor, he also propounded many scientific theories, most notably that of evolution. Concerning this, C.D. Darlington in his biography of Charles Darwin wrote: "A convincing argument appeared for the first time ... in the work of Darwin's grandfather at the end of the eighteenth century." A prophet even with honor in his own country, he was while he lived compared to Da Vinci and the contemporary Goethe. Mr. King-Hele writes vividly, reviewing Dr. Darwin's achievements and assessing his significance for our times. He also examines his personality, his chief literary works, and his influence on the great Romantic poets and the first and most famous piece of science fiction, Mary Shelley's Frankenstein.--Dust jacket
