Scottish physiologist John Scott Haldane (1860-1936) helped find out how to determine the regulation of breathing and discovered the "Haldane effect" in haemaglobin. At that time his discoveries revolutionized current ideas about respiration. Haldane was also the inventor of the gas-mask during World War I. Between 1907 and 1913 he gave lectures in Physiology at Oxford. Beside honorary degrees from many universities, John Scott Haldane was elected Fellow of the Royal Society (FRS) in 1897. His philosophical ideas were mainly developed in the last two decades of his life and published in books like "The Sciences and Philosophy" and "The Philosophical Basis of Biology". Haldane was the founder of "The Journal of Hygiene".''--Provided by publusher

"The mechanistic theory of life is now outworn and must soon take its place in history as a passing phase in the development of biology. But physiology will not go back to the vitalism which was threatening to strangle it, and from which it escaped last century. The real lesson of the movement of that time will never be lost. The book belongs to a transition period, but the transition is forward and not backward. My treatment of the subject may possibly be looked on askance in some quarters as reactionary: for I have been largely influenced by the ideas and work of older physiologists. If, however, I have gone backward, it is only to pick up clues which had been temporarily lost; and all of these clues lead forward--forward to a new physiology which embodies what was really implicit in the old. The leaders of the mechanistic movement of last century got rid of vitalism, but in doing so got rid of life itself. I have tried to paint a picture of the body as alive
