Title in English: Physiology, from the series: Bolks' Companions
Abstract / summary in English:
Can physiology give more insight into the living human organism than the mere facts reveal at first? Is the level of activity the same for all organs? Are the vital qualities at work in organs unique for organisms and limited to biological activity? Can we find a scientific basis to research the coherence between organ systems?
By enhancing the current scientific method with phenomenological points of view we can find meaning in the facts and understand them as an expression of life itself. The phenomenological method makes the relation between organs visible and comprehensible. It approaches scientific facts from the point of view of their coherence and can give totally new insights this way.
What emerges is a grasp of the interrelations between biological processes, consciousness, and nature.
