Produktbeschreibung
Francis BACON, in his Novum Organum, Robert BOYLE, in his Skeptical Chemist and René DESCARTES, in his Discourse on Method; all of these men were witnesses to the th scientific revolution, which, in the 17 century, began to awaken the western world from a long sleep. In each of these works, the author emphasizes the role of the experimental method in exploring the laws of Nature, that is to say, the way in which an experiment is designed, implemented according to tried and tested te- niques, and used as a basis for drawing conclusions that are based only on results, with their margins of error, taking into account contemporary traditions and prejudices. Two centuries later, Claude BERNARD, in his Introduction to the Study of Experimental Medicine, made a passionate plea for the application of the experimental method when studying the functions of living beings. Twenty-first century Biology, which has been fertilized by highly sophisticated techniques inherited from Physics and Chemistry, blessed with a constantly increasing expertise in the manipulation of the genome, initiated into the mysteries of information techn- ogy, and enriched with the ever-growing fund of basic knowledge, at times appears to have forgotten its roots.

Rezensionen
From the reviews:

"A strikingly complete yet highly readable history of biomedical sciences, from BCE to the present, would be invaluable to scientists of all ages. In this well-written work translated from the original French version, accomplished biochemists Pierre Vignais ... and Paulette Vignais (emer., CNRS, France) went one step further and painted a seamless picture of the evolution of the scientific method on a superb historical backdrop. ... Summing Up: Highly recommended. Students of all levels, researchers/faculty, and professionals." (B. D. Spiegelberg, Choice, Vol. 48 (5), January, 2011)
