Summary: The first textbook of physiology (first published in German in four parts from 1833 to 1840) and a key book in the emergence of the still-dominant monist-materialist model in medicine and psychology. Muller's work began a new era in the study of physiology: he pioneered the use of experimental methods in medicine and introduced the element of psychology into physiological investigatin. He has made the first attempts to explain physiological problems in terms of existing comparative physical and chemical knowledge. [Norman Catalog]
