Comparative physiology of the brain and comparative psychology by Jacques Loeb( Book )

76 editions published between 1899 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 610 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"It is the purpose of this book to serve as a short introduction to the comparative physiology of the brain and of the central nervous system. Physiology has thus far been essentially the physiology of Vertebrates. I am convinced, however, that for the establishment of the laws of life-phenomena a broader basis is necessary. Such a basis can be furnished only by a comparative physiology which includes all classes of the animal kingdom. I have added at the end of each chapter a list of the chief papers of which I have made use. Although far from complete, this may serve the beginner as a guide for the further study of the subjects touched upon"--Preface. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2009 APA, all rights reserved)

Experimentelle Physiology
The mechanistic conception of life; biological essays by Jacques Loeb( Book )

18 editions published between 1912 and 2010 in English and held by 370 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The essays contained in this volume were written on different occasions mostly in response to requests for a popular presentation of the results of the author's investigations. The title of the volume characterizes their general tendency as an attempt to analyze life from a purely physico-chemical viewpoint. Since they deal to a large extent with the personal work of the author, repetition was unavoidable, but in view of the technical difficulties presented by some of the topics this may serve to facilitate the understanding of the subject"--Preface.

The organism as a whole, from a physiochemical viewpoint by Jacques Loeb( Book )

39 editions published between 1916 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 333 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book an attempt is made to show that the unity of the organism is due to the fact that the egg (or rather its cytoplasm) is the future embryo upon which the Mendelian factors in the chromosomes can impress only individual characteristics, probably by giving rise to special hormones and enzymes. We can cause an egg to develop into an organism without a spermatozoon, but apparently we cannot make a spermatozoon develop into an organism without the cytoplasm of an egg, although sperm and egg nucleus transmit equally the Mendelian characters. The conception that the cytoplasm of the egg is already the embryo in the rough may be of importance also for the problem of evolution since it suggests the possibility that the genus- and species-heredity are determined by the cytoplasm of the egg, while the Mendelian hereditary characters cannot contribute at all or only to a limited extent to the formation of new species. Such an idea is supported by the work on immunity, which shows that genus- and probably species-specificity are due to specific proteins, while the Mendelian characters may be determined by hormones which need neither be proteins nor specific or by enzymes which also need not be specific for the species or genus. Such a conception would remove the difficulties which the work on Mendelian heredity has seemingly created not only for the problem of evolution but also for the problem of the harmonious character of the organism as a whole"--Preface.

Vol. 1: "In spite of the diversity of topics on general physiology, a single leading idea permeates all the papers of this collection, namely, that it is possible to get the life phenomena under our control, and that such a control and nothing else is the aim of biology. Thus the reader will notice that in a series of these publications I have tried to find the agencies which determine unequivocally the direction of the motion of animals, and will also notice that I consider a complete knowledge and control of these agencies the biological solution of the metaphysical problem of animal instinct and will. In taking up the problem of regeneration I started out with the idea of controlling these phenomena, and considered it my first aim to find means by which one organ could at desire be caused to grow in the place of another organ. Thus the experiments on heteromorphosis originated. As far as the problem of fertilization is concerned, it seemed to me that the first step toward its solution should consist in the attempt to produce larvae artificially from unfertilized eggs in various classes of animals. - Vol.2: As for the present discussion, it is useless to defend its methods to people who by nature or by training are opposed to all thoroughgoing philosophical inquiry. Such are nowadays accustomed to say that they are already well aware of the limits of human thinking, and that they confine themselves wholly to "the realm of experience." It is useless to tell them that this book also is an inquiry regarding just this realm of experience. As to the principal special features of this discussion, they are: (1) The definition and comparison of what I have called the Four Historical Concepts of Being. I believe this aspect of these lectures to be, in many respects, a novelty in discussion. (2) The form here given to the criticism of Realism in the Third Lecture. (3) The use made of the parallelism between the realistic and the mystical concepts of Being in the Fourth and Fifth Lectures. (4) The transition, in the Sixth and Seventh Lectures, from the concept of the Real as the Valid to that concrete conception of Being which, to my mind, constitutes Idealism. (5) The statement of the finite contrast and the final unity of the External and Internal Meaning of Ideas. (6) The concept of Individuality which is expounded in the Seventh and in the later lectures, and the reconciliation of the One and the Many proposed here and in my Supplementary Essay"--Preface.
