Pradines' book is a series of his studies about the philosophy of sensation. After having posed the most general problems pertaining thereto (e.g., those concerning quality, space, outer perception, perceptual memory), and after having examined—in the prior volume1—those among the primary senses which he describes as "senses of need" (pleasure, taste, and smell), the author devotes the present volume to the examination of cutaneous sensibility, i.e., to that set of sensory data that constitute the "senses of defense."
