Description
 
Edwin Clarke (au); L.S. Jacyna (au). Argues that changes in ideas of the function & structure of the nervous system during the 19th century were stimulated by the romantic philosophy of nature that exerted a major influence upon biological thought in the first half of the 19th century. The late 18th century saw the beginnings of a trend to search for synthesis, unit, & general laws in the life sciences rather than to concentrate upon narrowly conceived empirical studies. There was a growing conviction that the human organism could not be understood in isolation; its relations to the rest of the organic world & even with inorganic nature must be discovered if knowledge was to advance.
