PROEM.
THE
notion
that
the
physical
body
of
man
is
as
it
were
the
exteriorization
of
an
invisible
subtle
embodiment
of
the
life
of
the
mind
is
a
very
ancient
belief.
Conjectures
concerning
it
vary
with
every
stage
of
culture
and
differ
within
every
stage.
But
the
underlying
conception
invariably
holds
its
ground,
and
makes
good
its
claim
to
be
one
of
the
most
persistent
persuasions
of
mankind
in
all
ages
and
climes.
It
is,
however,
the
prevailing
habit
of
the
sceptical
rationalism
of
the
present
day
to
dismiss
summarily
all
such
beliefs
of
antiquity
as
the
baseless
dreams
of
a
pre-
scientific
age,
and
to
dump
them
all
indis
criminately
into
the
midden
of
exploded
superstitions.
But
this
particular
super
stition,
I
venture
to
think,
cannot
be
justly
disposed
of
in
so
contemptuous
a
fashion.
