A history of neurology by Walther Riese( Book )

20 editions published between 1958 and 2013 in English and held by 418 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this book, the second in our medico-historical series, Dr. Walther Riese portrays the vast panorama of the history of neurologic thought, breaking it down into six panels, each one of which is a window through which he, with the luminous thought of the historian and philosopher, casts new light upon the neurology. The author first considers the knowledge of the function of the nervous system, which in some respects preceded the knowledge of its anatomy; he then analyzes the history of the knowledge of the nervous impulse and of reflex action; he proceeds to present the historical evolution of the theory of cerebral localizations and of the rediscovery of the totality of the being; and lastly he examines the problem of pain in neurology. Like the panels of a triptych, the sections of this book are beautifully integrated, conjuring a dramatic and colorful picture of man's search for knowledge of himself and of his basic medical problems by exploring the organs of the nervous system and its unfathomed functions"--Introduction.

Principles of neurology in the light of history and their present use by Walther Riese( )

13 editions published between 1950 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 260 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This monograph is devoted to an analysis and interpretation of the basic concepts used in neurology. The history of these principles is traced from their first and original conception to their present use. For the first time in the history of neurology, I believe, a systematic effort is made to submit these principles to the test of reasoning and logic. The author tries to integrate them into a general view of organized nature. He adopts the principle of evolution of nervous function which, however, he does not conceive as an unbroken progress from imperfect to more perfect types, but rather as a functional metamorphosis to which a basic coordinating mechanism, existing from the very beginning, is submitted"--Book.
