Third Edition. In this famous work, Bichat brought together all his concepts under a majestic doctrine of vitalism. He assigned a specific vital property or different mode of vitalism to each of the tissues he had defined, which he credited with their own type of sensibility and contractility. He brought histology to the service of pathology, and he is today looked upon as the founder of histology. Garrison-Morton: 597.
