9780521400497: The French Paracelsians: The Chemical Challenge to Medical and Scientific Tradition in Early Modern France

The scientific revolution of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries is normally characterised in terms of astronomy and the physics of motion. In The French Paracelsians, first published in 1992, Allen Debus narrates an important episode whose contribution to the scientific revolution has been largely ignored: the long-standing contention between Paracelsians and Galenists. Shortly after the medical authority of Galen had been re-established during the Renaissance, Paracelsus, a Swiss-German firebrand, proposed a new approach to natural philosophy and medicine - through chemistry. The resulting debate between Paracelsians and Galenists lasted more than a century, embroiling medical establishments across Europe. In France the debate was particularly bitter, with the Medical Faculty in Paris determined to keep out of all fields of chemistry medicine. Debus elucidates this important polemic, not only in regard to Paracelsian pharmaceutical chemistry and clinical cosmology, but also the development of chemical physiology, and its struggle with seventeenth-century medicine dominated by mechanical philosophy.

Recensione:

"Debus has dramatically enriched our knowledge of Renaissance and modern science, including themes and figures that traditional historians of science have neglected. Thanks to Debus's studies, the relevance of individuals like Paracelsus, Robert Fludd and Jean-Baptiste van Helmont to modern science and philosophy is now recognised....The author draws on an impressive array of documents...." Antonio Clericuzio, Times Higher Education Supplement

"...describes the internecine warfare in a clear and readable manner with just the right amount of quotation. The book is written with great authority and I am sure it will be the definitive account of this episode in the history of medicine for many years to come." A. R. Butler, New Scientist

"...an important contribution to the history of pharmacy and to some aspects of the early history of chemistry and of medicine." Maurice Crosland, Nature

"...succeeds admirably in documenting the `chemical challenge' to both medical and scientific tradition in early modern France. A very readable yet scholarly account, handsomely illustrated; very interesting reading for undergraduates and academic specialists alike." J.W. Dauben, Choice

"...a masterly study...." Thomas S. Willard, Studies in Hermeticism

"Debus's use of primary sources is exemplary (16 pages of references--may of them rare and difficult to obtain). His work is a model of scholarship....The book is an essential contribution to a better understanding of one of the most difficult figures in medical history. It is a model of what might be done with other threads of the Paracelsian corpus if one concentrates on primary sources." Edmund D. Pellegrino, Quarterly Review of Biology

"...a major contribution not only ot the study of the history of medicine and the history of both medical and non-medical chemistry but also to the history of science, the history of ideas." Bibliotheque d'Humanisme et Renaissance

"...narrates an important episode whose contributions to the scientific revolution has been largely ignored: the long-standing contention between Paracelsians and Galenists....Debus shows how the purported triumph of the mechanists in the scientific academies was partial at best, recounting the osmotic acceptance of chemistry by the academies. This persistent influence of medical chemistry was significant both for the chemical revolution and as one of the driving forces behind the scientific revolution, and deserves greater recognition by historians.

"...a welcome addition to Allen Debus' studies of the Paracelsian tradition in early modern Europe....As a work of intellectual history, this book is successful. Debus agilely traces the complex development of French Paracelsianism showing its relation to humanist medicine, to Protestantism, and to the new philosophy." William Eamon, Renaissance Quarterly
