      These laws, not to be compared, indeed, with those of nature in general, are the subject of a special department in human physiology. They can only be known and reduced to anything like precision, by acquiring exact notions respecting the anatomy, psychology, and biology of man, and consequently, after having accurately distinguished the two elements of the human dynamism. The code of this association is what we denominate, anthropopœia; a science essentially medical, intimately connected with moral principles, and having no equivalent in comparative physiology.
