Man on his nature by Charles Scott Sherrington( Book )

114 editions published between 1940 and 2009 in 4 languages and held by 1,682 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

Sherrington, his life and thought by John C Eccles( Book )

1 edition published in 1978 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

So much has been written about the scientific contributions of Sherrington that the man himself, and his thoughts, have been overshadowed. More and more, students of history are calling for creative writing on the whole man, particularly when he is a genius. Those interested in the genesis of ideas want to know the settings for discoveries and the relevant circumstances which ushered in new truths and new insights. The "prepared mind" which Pasteur saw as the only one to be "favoured by fortune" is of immense importance in science, and our account of Sherring ton, we hope, will fill a very real gap in this field. During his life Sherrington actively discouraged any sugges tions that a biography be written. For that reason it was not until 1947 that there were any biographical notes by John Fulton, Graham Brown and A.D. Ritchie in a number of the British Medical Journal commemorating his ninetieth birthday, and in addition there was a leading article entitled "The Influence of Sherrington on Oinical Neurology". He left no autobiographical material except the few pages of reminiscences entitled "Mar ginalia", an essay written in honour of Charles Singer (1953)
