CLAUDE BERNARD, PHYSIOLOGIST

It is half a century since the great French physiologist, father of modern medicine, died. This is the story of his life, with half the book given over to an analysis of his contributions to science. The facts of his life are rather sparse, but Dr. Olmstead is the first to give them any semblance of continuity and interest, and the book as a whole manages to convey a rounded impression of the man as scientist and his place in his country's scientific history. A book for scientists, primarily.
