He looks at the structure of the tongue and the oesophagus, and asks why mental perceptions can have physical effects on the body. Some of his questions still trouble modern scientists, although they would not accept most of his answers.

The Commentary pays special attention to the linguistic elements involved in making these translations"--Provided by publisher."@en ;
