Comments: "Loeb's mechanistic theory of life." GM 135. Loeb's mechanistic theory of life and human behavior. ". most of the world's physiologists now follow his lead in detecting, defining, and measuring the chemical interchanges and physiological activities that originate or are regulated at the myriad boundaries and surfaces within tissues and cells. Because of Loeb's insistence that it is the duty of science to seek a mechanistic explanation of life, reinforced by his own experimentation and vigorous propagation of his views, his work has had wide influence on today's thought in biology and medicine." -- George W. Corner, History of the Rockefeller Institute.

I have just received the copy of Mysterious Island by Jules Verne which I ordered previously. The book arrived in the condition in which it was sent and I am very impressed with the condition of the book. I would like to thank the staff for all of their assistance and will certainly order again! Billy Dinwoodie, Johannesburg South Africa
