I hope to lead you there by presenting a wide range of scientific experiments, findings, and anecdotes that are in many cases quite amusing.

But since the class didn’t discuss at length the section of the book where that word appears, I want to expand upon it here. More specifically, I want to use that section to illustrate some of the ways that Conrad uses language to create tensions at this point in the novel.
