But before this can be accomplished, the science of human life and healthful existence must be divested of technical terms and brought down to the capacity of every instructor of youth... To aid in accomplishing these things... is the object of this journal'. Most of the articles, reviews, etc. in the Journal were written by Cornell, who also includes contributions by Walter Channing, John Collins Warren, and others - largely extracted from previously published works.
