These studies are based on the doctrine that there is an exact parallelism or correspondence between every object in nature and some activity of the mind. Animals correspond in general to the loves or affections for doing things. E.g. the rhinoceros corresponds with the "desire for certitude before believing supernatural things," and the rabbit's "chewing its cud represents reflection over the things that are presented, and admiration of them, with perhaps a spasmodic desire of imitating the good that is portrayed." Decorations at beginning & end of each chapter.
