Dear Mario,

Henry James writes in a footnote on pg. 7 of "The Principles of Psychology"
(Chicago: EBritt)

"Nothing is easier than to familiarize oneself with the mammalian brain. Get
a sheep's head, a small saw, chisel, and forceps... and unravel the parts."

Is this the quote you mean?

Could anyone tell me the exact reference of this quotation given by Joan
Carol Urquhart?

"Artists tear percepts out of their perceptions, in the
same way that Impressionist
                painters twist our perception of light by showing us their
impression of it with colour
                instead of line, creating a percept called Impressionism.
Deleuze states that this
                creates a completely new habit of thought, one that twists
our nerves and creates "a
                crack in the skull" (Parnet,  1996). "
