Any sound and rational program of therapeusis, even if it relates to special diseases such as those of the ear, as in Dr. Stein's monograph, must rest on a sound knowledge of the causes of those diseases. Furthermore, every physician prescribing treatment must through good judgment and experience (and this includes the experience of others in his own field) be aware of those conditions in which treatment cannot possibly cure but is only palliative. In general, the author has done well. He takes into consideration all forms of therapy and not only those relying on medicaments.
