Quotes | By

The following are quotes by Sherrington:

“The animate and the inanimate as we have seen are in their ultimate parts alike, and fundamentally so in the principle of their construction. When we systematize, the animate falls unconstrainedly into series with the inanimate. The animate then becomes merely a ‘special case’ within the more general. Analogously, the chemistry of the whole series of the carbon compounds taken within the chemical system is merely a special case within the more general.”
— Charles Sherrington (1938), Man on His Nature (pg. 122)
“Both the scientific and the everyday elbow are one and the same system of electrical charges. It is of no use asking physics and chemistry whether it is ‘alive’. They do not understand the word. When physics and chemistry have entered on their description of the perceptible, ‘life’ disappears from the scene, and consequently ‘death’. Both are anthropisms.”
— Charles Sherrington (1938), Man on His Nature (pgs. 236, 260) [1]
Science desires to rid itself of ‘anthropisms’ as unnecessary.”
— Charles Sherrington (1938), Man on His Nature (pg. 260)
