Specialization, Medical Practitioners, Status, Health, Darwinism

    Applauds the 'universal tendency amongst us to go in search of specialities'. For example, 'General practitioners seldom get beyond a respectable mediocrity, whilst your specialists attain to eminence and wealth. If an eye or an ear be affected, we seek out the man who has made that particular organ the study of his life'. (734) Also comments on the importance of good health in 'the great Olympics of life' (736).
