Product description


"A collection of uncommon coherence and importance. To come right to the point, there is every reason to expect this volume to be widely read, widely cited, and powerfully influential in shaping our understanding of biomedicine in the first half of the twentieth century. It is timely, intelligently orchestrated, and draws upon the focused work of more than a dozen scholars to provide a collective depiction of a theme that no single historian is yet in a position to offer. Greater than the Parts: Holism in Biomedicine, 1920-1950 looks absolutely first-rate, and should appeal to an unusually broad array of readers. Certainly it will become indispensable reading for the growing number of scholars who study the history and philosophy of twentieth-century life sciences and medicine."--Dr. John Harley Warner, Professor of the History of Medicine and Life Sciences, Yale University School of Medicine
