"During the latter part of last year, circumstances beyond human control subjected me to so much bodily fatigue and mental anxiety, that at their unfavourable termination I felt indisposed to prosecute the study of those subjects which my former investigations would have led me to follow. Under these circumstances, I rather desired amusement than labour, and from this cause I determined to comply with the suggestions of several scientific friends, who strongly recommended me to demonstrate the bearings of Electro-biology on the various matters which are comprised within the range of Electro-biological research"--Preface.

The mind of man: being a natural system of mental philosophy by Alfred Smee ( Book )
10 editions published in 1875 in English and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Thirty-five years ago I conceived the idea of studying mental phenomena in connexion with the organisation of the human frame. An early study of the brain, nerves, and organs of sensation, exhibited to my mind the voltaic character of the nervous system; and during this investigation, the beautiful method of injecting the smaller blood-vessels by carmine was discovered, which gave us the first exact knowledge of the distribution of the capillaries through the brain and spinal chord. My attention was next given to the study of voltaic electricity, which led to the invention of the form of battery which bears my name, and to the development of my work on Electro-metallurgy which has been employed in the arts. The relation of Physical Forces was next studied, and as the result of those labours the doctrine of the Monogenesis of Physical Forces was developed and published in my treatise on the 'Sources of Physical Science.' After much consideration, and the bestowal of intense and concentrated thought over a long period, I developed my natural system of mental philosophy, wherein the laws of mental action were attempted to be ascertained by a consideration of the structure and functions of the brain, the nerves, and of the organs of sensation, on the one hand, and by a study of the laws of electricity on the other. Later, a paper on the Human Mind was written, and the principles of mental phenomena were described in a popular form, in a treatise entitled 'Instinct and Reason.' For the purpose of studying more intimately the organs of sensation, vision was made the subject of particular attention, and the results of my experience were published in a monograph which particularly describes the researches on Binocular Perspective. The treatise entitled 'The Process of Thought adapted to Words and Languages' was next developed, which contains an account of the relational machine whereby most logical inductions and deductions can be obtained by mechanism. In view of the coming change, this treatise has been written as a contribution to mental philosophy, that we may conduct on a sure basis the discipline of our minds, the education of our youth, and the government of mankind.
