Any neurologist who calls attention to Hughlings Jackson's lectures on the evolution and dissolution of the nervous system renders a distinct service. Some years ago, Otto Sittig translated Jackson's study of convulsions. In the present volume there is given an accurate reproduction of Jackson's lecture as it appeared in the Lancet, on one side of the page with a translation into the German on the other. It would be highly desirable if all students and neurologists were to keep a copy of this book on their desks, for the philosophy of neurology, as it is expressed in these lectures, has never been equaled.
