Abstract

In a preceding lecture, I endeavored to show that the metabolism of the eye could, with some degree of justification, be considered under the heads of four equilibria. In this lecture, I shall endeavor to show with what profit this conception may be applied. The physiologic conception of the metabolism of the eye was crudely, and also of necessity, briefly expressed. In one sense it may have seemed somewhat complicated, and in another it may have seemed to carry with it an air of simplicity. It is to be remembered, however, that it is by no means final. It represents merely the beginning of a new point of view, an attempt to look at things in as fundamental a way as possible, to coordinate a complexity of observations by simplifying them in a general theory. It is to be remembered (in the words of C. D. Broad)
