Zoonomia, or, The laws of organic life. Vol. I. by Erasmus Darwin ( Book )
134 editions published between 1794 and 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,610 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The purport of the following pages is an endeavour to reduce the facts belonging to Animal Life into classes, orders, genera, and species; and, by comparing them with each other, to unravel the theory of diseases. It happened, perhaps unfortunately for the inquirers into the knowledge of diseases, that other sciences had received improvement previous to their own; whence, instead of comparing the properties belonging to animated nature with each other, they, idly ingenious, busied themselves in attempting to explain the laws of life by those of mechanism and chemistry; they considered the body as an hydraulic machine, and the fluids as passing through a series of chemical changes, forgetting that animation was its essential characteristic"--Preface.
