Excerpt from Matter, Energy, Force, and Work: A Plain Presentation of Fundamental Physical Concepts and of the Vortex-Atom and Other Theories Only in this way will the student be assured that at every stage of his progress he possesses a secure and stable body of knowledge, and is not working in a circle. Benefit will be received from the logical habit of thought thus engendered, not less than from the knowledge acquired. The first of the two parts into which the work has been divided contains its subject-matter proper. The definitions and views given are not designed to be an exposition of current and accepted usage or literature. Rather they constitute a sporadic attempt at clear, consecutive setting forth of individual thought. The book is constructive in spirit, not critical; and it is purposely almost devoid of historical and personal allusions. Part second consists of summaries of the chief theories of the nature of matter, energy, and force. These are intended mainly to give more concreteness to the concepts than could properly be introduced into the first part. Their purely hypothetical character demands this clear demarcation, but by no means debars them from service in the present connection. The publication of the volume has been rendered possible by the generous kindness of Mr. Francis Blake, of Boston. The possibility of its preparation, as well as of all other work during several years, has been due to the personal devotion, care, and counsel of Mrs. Holman, and to her cooperation, which has included, as a part, the reading to me of all references consulted and of all the manuscript and proofs for revision. Full acknowledgment is tendered to Lord Kelvin and to Professor J. J. Thomson for permitting the use of extracts from personal letters; to Miss Catharine B. Runkle for friendly aid and criticism; and to my friends Professors H. M. Goodwin and A. A. Noyes for criticism and suggestion.
