Abstract

John Hunter was a giant in the natural sciences and medicine (Fig. 1). His overall contributions to the basic and clinical neurosciences were substantial but are little known. One reason is because as a naturalist Hunter's underlying emphasis was upon the greater understanding of life itself, including paleontology and geology. His main interests were in the philosophy of life and nature, and he was one of the few in England at that time who took a really comprehensive view of these phenomena. Essentially a novel thinker rather than a studious scholar, he extensively utilized both inductive and deductive methods.
