A Treatise on the Medical Jurisprudence of Insanity

Excerpt from A Treatise on the Medical Jurisprudence of Insanity The direction Of conduct towards the object chosen is called the intention or aim. Finally there takes place a series Of bodilv motions and trains Of thought and feel ing fitted to the execution Of the intention. I think this is a substantially correct account of normal voluntary action. It would be difficult to attach any meaning to the expression voluntary action, if either motive or choice, or a volition, or an intention, or actions directed towards its execution, were absent, though they may not always be equally well marked. Mental disease, or disease Of the brain. Powerfully afiects, or may affect, the knowledge by which our actions are guided, the feelings by which our actions are prompted, the will by which our actions are performed, whether the word will is taken to mean volition or a settled judgment Of. The reason acting as a standing con trol on such actions as relate to it. The means by which these effects are produced are unnatural feelings delu sions or false Opinions as to facts; hallucinations or deceptions of the senses; impulses to particular acts or classes of acts; and in some cases, it is asserted, a specific physical inability to recognize the difference between moral good and evil as a motive for doing good and avoiding evil.
