XVIII The Discourse on the Anatomy of the Brain

  • Troels Kardel
  • Paul Maquet



Instead of promising to satisfy your curiosity in what concerns the anatomy of the brain, I do confess here sincerely and publicly that I know nothing of this matter. I should wish with all my heart to be the only one forced to speak so, for I could take advantage with time of the knowledge of others and it would be very lucky for the human kind if this part which is the most delicate of all and which is liable to very frequent and very dangerous diseases was known as well as many philosophers and anatomists imagine.
