Rudolf Virchow; An Address, Introductory to the Course of Lectures of the Term, 1881-82.
by [VIRCHOW, Rudolf Ludwig Karl] JACOBI, Abraham (1830-1919).
New York:: Trow's Printing and Bookbinding, 1881., 1881. Small 8vo. 35,  pp. Disbound; creased. Text quite clean. Good. Jacobi was a giant of American pediatrics, and he remains the only foreign-born President of the American Medical Association. His view of pediatrics included the social and cultural aspects of caring for children. It is in this light that he addresses Rudolf Virchow. Virchow's seminal work in cellular theory and biology often overshadows Virchow's view that medicine was more than science. A memorable Virchow aphorism is, "Medicine is a social science and politics are nothing but medicine on a grand scale." Social and political reforms based on medical knowledge were critical to the public's health. Jacobi adopts this perspective in his laudatory discussion of Virchow.
