Aristotle on the Heart

Nature volume 25, pages 528529 | Download Citation



ALLOW me space to say, in reference to Dr. Richardson's letter in NATURE, vol. xxv. p. 505, that my note on Aristotle's account of the heart, though so lately published, was written many years ago, and therefore in complete independence of Prof. Huxley's article on the same subject. This fact, of course, in no way lessens Prof. Huxley's complete rights of priority; but I am anxious to state it, in order to clear myself of any suspicion of having borrowed from that distinguished writer without acknowledgment.
