"Mind is the highest faculty of man; what Mind is we do not know, and probably we cannot know, but there is abundant evidence that mind is in some way connected with brain-action. I have found it convenient to use the term "mentation" for that physical action of the brain which is associated with the phenomena of mind; as thus defined, mentation is a function of the brain, physical in kind, and capable of physical investigation. In the arguments here used it is postulated as a working hypothesis, that all physical phenomena are due to physical causes, or necessarily follow upon certain physical antecedents, and that every physical change is due to a purely physical force. The methods here employed are those used in physical research; forces are studied in the bodies or material objects where they are seen, the physical expression of such forces being noted as an index of the actual but invisible"--Introduction.
