The Physiologia of Jean Fernel (1567) by Jean Fernel( Book )

12 editions published in 2003 in English and Latin and held by 222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The practice of physick in seventeen several books : wherein is plainly set forth the nature, cause, differences, and several sorts of signs : together with the cure of all diseases in the body of man by Lazare Rivière( Book )

26 editions published between 1658 and 1984 in English and held by 170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lazare Rivière (called Lazarus Riverius in Latin), born in 1589, practiced medicine in Montpellier, France, and eventually became physician to the French king. He wrote 17 books, each covering the diseases of a separate part of the body, and his collected works were published in Latin in 1655 in a single volume, The Practice of Physick. There were many subsequent editions, including several editions of the English translation by the famous London herbalist Nicholas Culpeper. Rivière's Book 15, Of the Diseases of Women, gives a good insight into the way 17th century medicine was practised, with its great emphasis on the regulation of the 'humours' by the use of herbal and other natural remedies. It also provides a marvellous view of the miseries which most medieval women, rich and poor, would have had to suffer during the ordeals of pregnancy and childbirth at that time. This is one of the first textbooks of obstetrics and gynaecology ever to be translated from Latin into English. Enough of the original text is retained to convey the flavour of the work, repetition and verbosity has been ruthlessly removed and the technical jargon has been translated into simple modern terms. The text is thus accessible to both the medical and the general reader

Man on his nature by Charles Scott Sherrington( Book )

2 editions published in 1955 in English and held by 34 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this classic of modern scientific literature, Sir Charles Sherrington describes the physical basis of life with particular emphasis on human consciousness and its origins in living substance. The author proposes the fundamental questions of man's physical nature: What is life? Where in nature did it originate? What are its limits? How did mind evolve from it? And where, in nature, does consciousness reside? The book centres on the writings of the little-known sixteenth-century physician Jean Fernel. After setting out Fernel's views on the nature of man, Sherrington proceeds to develop his own thoughts, drawing upon a wide variety of philosophical theories. Using Fernel as a historical case study, the book demonstrates how any scientific outlook is always part of its age, and shows how views on the eternal enigmas of mankind, mind and life have changed radically over time. Sherrington's book is important in the history of ideas for its assessment of the value of advances in natural science as a framework for the development of natural theology
