9781330155479: The New Physiology and Other Addresses (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from The New Physiology and Other Addresses

Ivhen we look back on the history of physiology, it seems perfectly evident that physiological progress has been dependent on the progress of physics and chemistry. On this point there is no room for doubt. To take only one example, where should we be in the investigation of animal metabolism but for the ideas and experimental methods furnished to us by physics and chemistry? We should know next to nothing about respiration, animal heat, nutrition, or muscular and other work. Physiology depends at every turn on physics and chemistry, and its future progress will certainly be equally dependent on advances in physical and chemical knowledge. This consideration has, I imagine, weighed very heavily in the minds of those physiologists Who have concluded that physiology is nothing but applied physics and chemistry. A further fact which weighs equally heavily is that in spite of diligent search nothing contradicting the fundamental laws of conservation of matter and energy has been discovered in connection with living organisms.
