In the preface the author states that self-poisoning has advanced from a plausible and fascinating theory to a verity. In the first chapter he reviews the various conceptions of life and touches on the investigations of Loeb. In succeeding chapters he discusses the history of autointoxication; the modern views of disease; the influence of fatigue—mental and physical—on this condition; the toxicology of the emotions and sleep; the physics and chemistry of thought; symptoms of self-poisoning; psychology of living in relation to prevention and cure of autointoxication.
