Description
Preface

THE SYSTEM OF PHYSIGNOMY described in this book was evolved and developed by Mary Olmsted Stanton who presented it to the world over fifty years ago. She discovered and located the facial signs of the internal organs of the body so that it is possible in the face the state of health and the degree of strength or weakness of the constitutions. She also discovered and proved that these internal organs from the physical bases from which, through the sensory nerves, the mental faculties are supported, and that there is a connection or correlation between physical function and mental faculty. She also defined and located in the face fifty main or principal faculties which together constitute the complete mental equipment of each individual. Stanton’s system is the only one in existence which is at once one in existence which is at once scientific, demonstrable and reliable.

The popular idea of Physiognomy rests mainly on observation of the features of the face alone, and the character delineations consist mostly of the barest generalizations without any methodical or scientific basis, so that it is not surprising that the subject as generally presented has met with but slight credence or acceptance amongst the intelligent public.

Without a knowledge of the underlying laws and principles that govern all organized being including man, and the meaning of the principles of from, it is impossible to delineate character correctly. It is like trying to analyse and describe some substance or liquid, without a knowledge of chemistry and physics. The human body and face are a development resulting from the operation of internal forces which determine the ultimate shape or from. To delineate character correctly, therefore, we must know what these forces are, how they work and nature of the laws that govern them. To understand the wonderful; mechanism of the mind we are obliged to comprehend something of scientific law and to base our observations upon the nanlyses of the sciences; to try to understand the harmonious interactions and relationship of parts of the body to the whole, so that we can trace the origin and development of the organs of the body and thus come to understand the harmonious interaction of function and faculty, and how the mental characteristics have been developed and become manifested in the features of the face.

To master thoroughly the meaning and apply the knowledge inhering in the “Five Organ Systems”, described in Chapter III, and the theory of physical functions and mental faculties and their sign in the face described in Chapter v of this work, is to really understand the foundation of character and to have an immediate insight into the principal capacities, powers and inclinations of the individual.

The laws, principles, and conclusions set forth in this work are incontrovertible, and lay down a definite method of character study that is both practical and reliable, which can be studies and acquired and acquired by the student with the proper aptitude, as is the case with all other professions.

Observation and reflection, added to a love of truth and a candid mind, are all that are needed for this study.

The books arrived today and I have to congratulate you on such a WONDERFUL packing job! I have never, ever, received such beautifully and carefully packed items from India in all my years of ordering. Each and every book arrived in perfect shape--thanks to the extreme care you all took in double-boxing them and using very strong boxes. (Oh how I wished that other businesses in India would learn to do the same! You won't believe what some items have looked like when they've arrived!) Again, thank you very much. And rest assured that I will soon order more books. And I will also let everyone that I know, at every opportunity, how great your business and service has been for me. Truly very appreciated, Namaste.
