Condition Report

First edition. The most important work of the distinguished physiologist and philosopher of medicine, listed among the reformers of the health and hospital system in France in the Napoleonic period, and considered one of the founders of anthropology.Gillispie: ?His fundamental philosophical work... is composed of twelve Mémoires collected in one volume [in realtŕ due, n.d.r.] in 1802. In this work Cabanis sets forth a psychological and an ethical system based on the necessary effects of an animal's organisation upon its relationship with its environment... Cabanis deemed as too abstract and limited Condillac's method of analysis, which regarded all psychic functions as transformations of sensations... Borrowing the word from the German philosophers, Cabanis termed the science of man as anthropologie.? Gillispie, D.S.B., III, pp. 1-2]. The work is offered with a valid export license.
