[New book] Charles T. Wolfe: La Philosophie de la biologie avant la biologie: Une histoire du vitalisme

Sarton Centre member Charles T. Wolfe's La Philosophie de la biologie avant la biologie: Une histoire du vitalisme (Classiques Garnier) studies the interrelation of discussions of 'Life', vitalism and the possibility of a science of life from the period of the Scientific Revolution through the constitution of biology as a science in the late 18th century and onto debates on organicism and vitalism in the 20th century. It is an attempt at a partial history of (modern) vitalism.
