This paper, by two competent observers, on the clinical position of so-called "genuine" epilepsy constitutes interesting reading. It is to be regretted, however, that after reading this critical material, we have learned nothing new. The fact is that though prizes have been awarded and much labor has been spent in elucidating the problem of epilepsy, we are no nearer its solution than Hughlings Jackson and Gowers were when they spoke of explosions of nervous energy. At the same time the brochure before us is proof of great activity and of an earnest attempt to correlate all that has so far been done in this perhaps the most obscure chapter in neuropathology.
