Abstract

title SUMMARY /title After a brief outline of the impressive expansion of physiology which took place in Europe during the Nineteenth century, the essay focuses on the developments occurred in Italy following the national unification. The main schools and exponents are considered, while an important common feature is seen in their broad philosophical attitudes and in their strong social bent. Furthermore, the essay suggests that Italian physiologists tried hard to hinder the process of growing specialization of medical knowledge and practice by claiming a sort of holistic approach to the bodily functions.
