Lot not sold

Prima edizione dell'opera più importante dell'illustre fisiologo e filosofo della medicina Pierre-Jean-George Cabanis [1757-1808], amico di Condorcet e di Mirabeau, annoverato tra i riformatori del sistema sanitario e ospedaliero in Francia nel periodo napoleonico, e considerato uno dei fondatori dell'antropologia. Medico di Mirabeau, si dice anche che avrebbe fornito a Condorcet il veleno che gli evitò l'esecuzione. "His fundamental philosophical work... is composed of twelve Mémoires collected in one volume [in realtà due, n.d.r.] in 1802. In this work Cabanis sets forth a psychological and an ethical system based on the necessary effects of an animal's organisation upon its relationship with its environment... Cabanis deemed as too abstract and limited Condillac's method of analysis, which regarded all psychic functions as transformations of sensations... Borrowing the word from the German philosophers, Cabanis termed the science of man as anthropologie" [Gillispie, D.S.B., III/pp. 1-2].
