I will praise Thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully
and that my soul knoweth right
well. (Psalm 139:14)
very little indeed to say about sweating, but what it does say
is remarkably significant. This significance is only apparent
when one has learned something about the intricacies of the sweating
mechanisms physiologically considered.
Hence a very large part of this
paper is occupied with things physiological. But several interesting
lines of thought develop in the process with respect to the relationship
between man and the animals, and between fear and pain.
By reason of its consideration
of other forms of sweating than that elicited by heat, such as
emotional and mental sweating, this paper may serve an incidental
purpose, namely, to introduce any reader unacquainted with the
subject to the possibilities of research from a number of different
points of view both physiological and psychological.
A guide to the literature is found
at the end.
