There is maybe no subject a lot more universally or more deeply intriguing than that which is the principal subject of the here and now work. Yet no publication, even making believe to science or precision, has hitherto appeared upon it. The types as well as proportions of animals– as of the equine and also the dog– have been analyzed in a hundred volumes: not one has been devoted to woman, on whose physical as well as ethical qualities the happiness of people, and the perpetual enhancement of the mankind, are dependant.
The reason for this has actually been, possibly.
The forget on the part of individuals, to combine anatomical and physiological understanding with the critical monitoring of the external forms of a lady; and also, perhaps, some repugnance to anthropological expertise on the part of the public. The last barrier, if ever it existed, is now passed, as numerous scenarios show; and it will certainly be the business of the author, in this work, to strive to anticipate the former.
The here and now job, next to providing new sights of the concept of appeal.
And of its application to the arts offers an evaluation as well as category of charm in a lady. A succeeding job will use the concepts right here developed to intermarriages and also crossings among humanity. And also will certainly explain their lead to a connection to the happiness of people. As well as to the appeal and the freedom from the insanity of their children. A final job will examine the relationships of a lady in culture. Will subject the lavish theory of writers on this subject who have actually been oblivious of anthropology. Will certainly define the reforms which the usual passions of mankind demand in this respect.
It is now to be seen, whether a branch of science which is strictly founded on composition and physiology– one which the viewers in no magical and also delusive theory, and also presents to him only unassailable realities– one which is applicable to the subject most universally and deeply intriguing to mankind, the critical judgment of female elegance, as founded on needed functions– and also one which unwinds the higher difficulties which that subject presents– may not excite as well as permanently command a great degree of public interest.
An initial sight of the importance of this subject is given up in the first chapter; the necessity of its discussion, in relation to the rate of interests of decency and also morality, is established in the 2nd; as well as some beneficial cautions as to young people are offered in the 3rd.
