This little book attempts to examine the relative rôles of heredity and external environment on the production of convulsions, especially epilepsy. The first portion is devoted to examination of the bodily constitution of patients and their relatives. The second portion is clinical and examines the different forms of the disease and the external factors that influence the constitutional structure. Final conclusions are not provided. The factual data included in this monograph are not convincing, but those who are especially interested in this subject may wish to consult it.
