I tackle the difficult physiology of movements in animals. The study of this subject has been attempted by many ancient authors and by more recent ones. To my knowledge, however, nobody has described or even suspected the innumerable, remarkable and interesting problems which are involved and can be discussed. Nobody has succeeded so far in confirming or solving these problems by using demonstrations based on Mechanics.
