LONDON CHAPMAN HALL, LIMITED 1907 Copyright, 1906 BY MARTIN H. FISCHER ROBERT DRUMMOND, PRINTER, NEW YORK AUTHORS PREFACE. THE addresses which have been collected for the first time in this volume and which were delivered in the main as summaries of my own special investigations concern themselves with the application of physical chemistry to different fields in medicine as rendered possible more particularly through advances in the physics and chemistry, of organic colloids.

In that questions in physiology as well as pathology and pharmacology are touched upon, it m y perhaps be hoped that different circles of medical men may be interested in the problems discussed in this volume. The translated addresses differ in only a few unimpor tant abbreviations from the original. The development of the guiding thought common to all of them stands out quite clearly.

Its foundation is the extensive parallelism between the laws which govern changes in the colloidal state in vitro and in the living organism. Even though the future may become acquainted with many a new fact through which the questions discussed in this volume may be made to appear in a different light, it will scarcely be possible to belittle the fruitful ness of the methods described and the stimulating effect iii iv AUTHORS PREFACE. of the results obtained through them. Since all the results that these methods can yield are asyet by no means attained it is hoped that the volume may be looked upon as a modest attempt to win friends capa ble of work in this still young field of labor.

WOLFGANG PAULI. VIENNA, May i f 1906. TRANSLATORS PREFACE. IT is hoped that the following translation of a few of Dr. Paulis papers may render some of the work of this modest Viennese investigator already familiar to a large circle of American and English workers accessi ble to yet others. The fundamental character of the subjects touched upon by the author needs no com ment. It is only hoped that the franslation may not have lost too much of the spirit and the letter of the original German.

The volume as a whole represents another stone in the structure of physical chemistry in the biological sciences and while it is not the tendency of modern times to divide existing sciences or fo create new ones, specialism is followed as a matter of necessity, so that it will not seem strange if in the near future we shall come to recognize as branches developing separately from the trunk which all these sciences have in common, a physico-chemical physiology and a physico-chemical pathology.

MARTIN H. FISCHER. OAKXAND, CALIFORNIA. PREFATORY NOTE TO AMERICAN EDITION. THE advance of medicine is so dependent upon progress in the fundamental sciences of physics, chem istry, and biology that he who will keep abreast of modern conceptions in physiology and pathology is compelled to be more or less conversant with theory and practice in the basal subjects. When one con siders the phenomenal development in recent years, through the work especially of Willard Gibbs, vant Hoff, and Arrhenius, in the domain of what is designated physical chemistry, itis not surprising that attempts should have been made to apply the new knowledge gained to the clearing up of some of the problems which confront the physician...
