Excerpt from La Machine Animale: Locomotion Terrestre Et Aerienne
Bien souvent et a toutes les epoques, on a compare les etres vivants aux machines, mais c'est de nos jours seulement que l'on peut comprendre la portee et la justesse de cette comparaison.
Sans doute, les anciens physiologistes voyaient, dans l'organisme animal comme dans la machine: des leviers, des poulies, des cordages, des pompes et des soupapes. Le jeu de ces appareils est decrit sous le nom de mecanique animale dans un grand nombre de traites classiques. Mais ces organes passifs ont besoin d'un moteur; c'est la vie, disait-on, qui, chez les animaux, met en jeu tous ces mecanismes, et l'on se croyait, d'apres cela, autorise a etablir une barriere infranchissable entre les machines inanimees et celles qui sont vivantes.
