Excerpt from Evolution and Disease
Most persons believe Pathology, as the Science Of Disease is called, to be so outside the comprehension of ordinary individuals, and even in its general bearings so utterly devoid of interest to all but medical men, that much misconception prevails in the minds of even educated persons in regard to its fundamental principles. As a matter of fact Pathology is only a department of Biology, and it is very important to bear this in mind if. We Wish to study successfully the origin, cause, and spread of disease. Yet paradoxical as it seems, whilst so many regard Pathology as occupying an isolated position among sciences, medical writers always point out the difficulty they find in framing a definition of disease, and indeed the impossibility of stating where health ends and disease begins.
