"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.
