By Amos Emerson Dolbear

PREFACE TO THE SECOND EDITION The issue of a new edition of this book gives me an opportunity to make some needed corrections, and enlarge it by the addition of three new chapters, which I hope will make it more useful to such as have a taste for fundamental physical problems. The first of these, Properties of Matter as Modes of Motion, presents the evidence that all the characteristic properties of matter are due to energy embodied in various forms of motion. The second, on The Implications of Physical Phenomena, points out what assumptions are made in explaining phenomena. It is the substance of a series of articles published in the Psychical Review in 1892 and 1893. The third, on The Relations between Physical and Psychical Phenomena, was read as a paper before the Psychical Congress at the World’s Fair in August, 1893. Judging from some of the comments made about my statements as to Modern Geometry on page 67, and as to Vital Force, p. 336, I have thought it would be useful to some to see corroboratory statements; and I have therefore added, in an appendix, a few iii PREFACE TO THE SECOND EDITION iv pages of quotations from some of the most eminent mathematicians and biologists on these subjects, and from them one may judge whether or not my statements are correct...
