About This Item

“Berkeley denied the existence of matter. Buchner declared that nothing else existed…. all the phenomena of the functioning of the human body were explicable on purely materialistic lines and it was only a question of time before this fact would be experimentally demonstrable. Buchner was not only one of the earliest, he was also the most uncompromising representative of this school. The thesis pursued in his Force and Matter is that thought is as much an emanation of the brain as bile is an emanation of the liver. The mind and the spirit are products of an animal organism in the same way as motion is a product of a steam-engine” (PMM).
