“ It shows us that through the intimate connexion between the mind and body, the former must at all times, and to an extent inconceivable by the thoughtless, influence the latter; and that unless this inward principle be disciplined, purified, enlightened, vainly must we look for that harmony between the two so necessary to human enjoyment. All this may appear to some readers as purely imaginative, or at the best as the forced conclusion of some formal moralist. To such we would say, "Read the book, and judge for yourself.'”-Athenæum.

“We have seldom perused a work which gives the mind more satisfaction than does this truly Christian and solacing work. No one can read it without feeling the many beautiful truths here made manifest, nor without experiencing that description of refreshing feeling, which, to the inquiring mind, is like what the cool draught is to the parched lips of the traveller in search of water.

Dr. MOORE is evidently a thorough Christian, a careful analyzer, morally and physically, and the tone of universal love which breathes in his pages leaves the impression that only a truly good man could write so eloquently, so lucidly, and withal, so scientifically. . . . . We cordially recommend this volume to all inquirers into the truths of the moral world, for we are well assured that they will be amply repaid by the beauties they will find in the investigation.”—The Atlas.

“In the highest acceptation of the word, Dr. MOORE is a Christian philosopher-intelligent, enlightened, full of knowledge, and steadfast in faith. He shows very conclusively that the mind of itself exercises a direct influence on our physical functions, and that it thinks, reasons, and wills, without their aid or intervention. It is able in composition ; and in passages where eloquence is permitted, rises into that beautiful and poetic form of expression natural to earnest conviction of the beneficence of Deity, and of the glorious destiny reserved for the soul, if its powers be well employed.”—The Britannia.

“ This book is fitted to dispose minds to reflection which may not have evinced any such tendency, and to the most reflecting it will not fail to supply welcome materials for thought." — British Quarterly Review.

“Dr. MOORE understands the constitution of genius, and not only this, but the work it can accomplish. We are pleased to extract from a book which possesses so much sound argument and so much valuable information.”—The Critic.

“This is a remarkable, ingenious, and interesting production. It is well written, and presents a rare combination of the spirit of the philosopher with the spirit of the Christian.”—Christian Witness.

“ This is a good book on a most important topic. The range is wide, and it is well occupied. The argument is conducted with the calmness of the philosopher, the temper of the Christian, and the skill of the most practised logician. There is a holy, chastened, modest spirit pervading the volume, which places it in a most advantageous contrast with much of the pretension of the day.”—Congregational Magazine.

“This is a most interesting volume. Philosophical, learned, pious, and therefore rational, it bespeaks the notice of every thinking man.

We may add, that this work, although ranging in the highest departments of science and speculative philosophy, is yet so enlivened by illustrative anecdotes as to be made interesting to the least instructed reader. We heartily recommend it to all."-Dolman's Magazine.

“ This treatise has interested us exceedingly.”Eclectic Review.

“ These all are subjects of the highest interest, and are treated by the author with ability, with just and apposite illustrations, and well conducted argument.”—Gentleman's Magazine.

“ Through every ge there extends a healthful moral principle. The style is pleasing, earnest, and, in many portions, eloquent. The volume abounds with anecdote, and we rose from its perusal gratified, and convinced that the writer was a man of benevolence and intellect.”—The Lancet.

“This is a most interesting work. The reading of such a book cannot fail to benefit the minds of professional men, whether students or practitioners, and to create a healthy tone of feeling."- Medical Gazette.

“ There is much material for thought in this volume, and we cordially recommend it to the attention of all who take an interest in the subjects discussed in its pages. The chapters on the 'Evils of Popular Phrenology,' on 'Injudicious Education, and on the Effects of the Passions on Health, especially the two latter, are particularly worthy attention."—Westminster Review.

Medical Society of London.

“I CANNOT avoid quoting a passage from the very able work of Dr. MOORE, who has given us the most sagacious and enlarged analysis of this very difficult subject with which I am acquainted.”—Essays on the Most Important Diseases of Women. By R. FERGUSON, M.D., Physician-Accoucheur to the Queen, and Professor of Obstetric Medicine, King's College, London.

“It is decidedly a work of great merit, and we feel confident it will hold a very high rank.”—British and Foreign Medical Review.

“ It ought to be in the hands of most practitioners.”—Medico-chirurgical Review.

“A well-digested and well-written Essay.”—The Lancet.
