Abstract

410 Book Reviews / Early Science and Medicine 13 (2008) 384­415 Karin Hartbecke, Metaphysik und Naturphilosophie im 17. Jahrhundert. Francis Glissons Substanztheorie in ihrem ideengeschichtlichen Kontext (Tübingen: Max Niemeyer Verlag, 2006), pp. X+298, €33.00, ISBN 3-484-36613-8. At long last, we have a monograph—and a very good one—on Francis Glisson (c. 1597-1677), the seventeenth-century physician better known for his anatomy of the liver and his physiological account of irritability. With the exception of a doctoral dissertation in Latin published in France in 1880 (Henri François Marion, Franciscus Glissonius quid de natura substantiae, seu vita naturae senserit et utrum Leibnitio de natura substantiae cogitanti quidquam contulerit , Paris, Baillière), so far nobody had devoted an entire book to Glisson.
