Hughlings Jackson’s Views on Consciousness

  • J. C. Eccles
Part of the Clinical Medicine and the Nervous System book series (CLIN.MED.NERV.)


Jackson was much more subtle in his writings than is generally believed. He was a philosopher always. In his first years he thought of devoting himself to philosophy and he kept that interest throughout life, and of course in his association with Herbert Spencer. However, I believe he finished far ahead of Herbert Spencer. He did not just follow him.
