This is an OCR edition with typos. Excerpt from book: whenever an opaque body intervened, and whenever the face was turned in another direction, such language would instantly become impossible. It is incapable of represent, ing the distinctness and successiveness of thought; it is limited on every side by physical conditions; it requires an attention too exclusive and intense; it would reach a shorter distance,1 and appeal to a less spiritual sense. For though both Sight and Hearing are ideal senses, as distinguished from the inferior ones of touch, taste, and smell, Hearing is more ideal in its nature, and reaches more nearly to the soul than Sight.
