Correlation and Conservation of Forces.




By EDWARD L. YOUMANS, M.D. 12mo, 490 pages.


C 0 N T E N T S.
I. By W. R. GROVE. The Correlation of Physical Forces.
II. By Prof. HELMHOLTZ. The Interaction of Natural Forces.

III. By J. R. MAYER. 1. Remarks on the Forces of Inorganic Nature.
2. On Celestial Dynamics.
3. On the Mechanical Equivalent of Heat.

IV. By Dr. FARADAY. Some Thoughts on the Conservation of Forces.
V. By Prof. LIEBIG. The Connection and Equivalence of Forces.
VI. By Dr. CARPENTER. The Correlation of the Physical and Vital Forces.

“ This work is a very welcome addition to our scientific literature, and will be
particularly acceptable to those who wish to obtain a popular, but at the same time
precise and clear view of what Faraday justly calls the highest law in physical science,
the principle of the conservation of force. Sufl’icient attention has not been paid to the
publication of collected monographs or memoirs upon special subjects. Dr. Youmans’
work exhibits the value of such collections in a very striking manner, and we earnestly
hope his excellent example may be followed in other branches of science.”-—American
Journal of Science.

“It was a happy thought which suggested the publication of this volume. The
question is often asked, and not so easily answered, What are the new doctrines of the
Correlation and Conservation of Forces? In this volume we have the answer, and
with the reasons of its chief eXpounders; those who are ignorant on that theme, can
thus question the original authorities.”—New Englander.

“ We here have the original expositions of the new Philosophy of Forces, accompa-
nied by an excellent exposition of both the expositions and the expositors; the whole
will be a rare treat to the lovers of advancing scientific thought.”——Method'is¢
Quarterly Review.

“This is, perhaps, the most remarkable book of the age. We have here the latest
discoveries, and the highest results of thought concerning the nature, laws, and con.
nections of the forces of the universe. No higher or more sublime problem can engage
the intellect of man than is discussed by these doctors of science intent alone on arriv
in; at the truth.”—-Detroit Free Press.

".“his work presents a praiseworthy specimen of complete and faithful authorship,
and its publication at this time will form an epoch in the experience of many thinking
