Comments: Broussais (1772-1838) saw disease as "real entities, independent of the organism." He declared that fevers are only reactions to certain inflammations. He "lived at a time when a monistic system of pathology was still possible. His was a kind of "Brownism" in reverse, in which the phenomena of illness are different from those of health, only in intensity." (DSB). He touches on various aspects of the body to comment on their pathology at different times.
