Excerpt from A Laboratory Manual of Physiological Chemistry The rapid development of the science of bio-chemistry, and the establishment of closer relationships on the one hand with the pure sciences of physics, chemistry, zoology, pathology, and botany, and on the other with clinical chemistry and medicine, make it necessary that the science be presented in a broader way than has hitherto been the case. Instruction in physiological chemistry is still confined largely or entirely to the subjects of the foods, digestion, the blood, and the urine of mammals, and is given exclusively to medical students. Confinement within such narrow bounds has not only been detrimental to the science itself, which is one of the broadest and most fundamental of all the biological sciences, but it has been equally injurious to the development of scientific therapeutics and to physiology, since wide fields of research which might be expected to yield discoveries of value to physiology and pathology have been neglected. At this University an attempt has been made to bring physiological chemistry into closer touch with the biological sciences, without unduly sacrificing connection with the clinical branches; and this Manual represents the laboratory course which is given to students who wish general instruction in the subject, which shall be not too remote from its practical applications. The Manual so prepared is necessarily a compromise between ideals and their practical applications. The laboratory course is supplemented by lectures in which the general chemistry and chemical properties of animal and plant protoplasm are developed more at length, and by a course in clinical and pathological chemistry which is taken by medical students only. It will be seen by an inspection of the index that the subject is developed using the mammal as a type of living organisms.
