Excerpt from The Human Species Considered From the Standpoints of Comparative Anatomy, Physiology, Pathology and Bacteriology

IN his work on the Human Species, Hopf compares the structure, functions and diseases of man with those of animals. It must not be taken, however, that the volume is simply a collection of facts and details. A glance at the headlines of the pages will reveal the wide extent of the ground covered. After discussing the distribution of mankind, the ancestors of man, the strue ture and functions of the various tissues, Hopf deals with such interesting questions as psychology, the origin of the mind, emotions and their expression, social customs, marriage, communism, modesty, shame, religion and art. He then proceeds to consider the diseases of man and animals, the parasites common or peculiar to each, and concludes with a fascinating chapter on self help in animals and primitive man. Realising that such aspects of the subject will appeal to the general reader. The text has been shorn of scientific terminology as much as possible.
