Excerpt from Mind in Nature: Or the Origin of Life, and the Mode of Development of Annals The following chapters comprise the substance of a course of public lectures which were delivered by the author in the hall of the Lowell Institute, in Boston, Mass., during the months of February and March, 1864. Since that time a considerable amount of matter has been added, chiefly in the form of notes; and some alterations have been made in the sequence of the subjects, during which it has been found necessary to arrange the chapters in such a way that they do not correspond with the original succession of the lectures. To obviate any difficulty, however, which might arise from the frequent references to previous lectures, care has been taken to mention the page upon which the subject alluded to may be found. Although these lectures were originally given to the public in a popular form, it must not be supposed that they were altogether based upon what was already known to the scientific world; on the contrary, no small proportion of the facts and ideas promulgated herein are claimed by the author to be original with himself In this respect the attention of naturalists is invited to the following subjects. The structure of Bacterium termo. The organization of Vibrio baccillus. The theory of the egg. The polarity and bilaterality of the egg.
