Chapter Summary

This book is conceived as a biography of an experimental physiologist who became a neurologist during the period from the end of the nineteenth century to the middle of twentieth. In this biography of the life and scientific endeavours of Gysbertus Godefriedus Johannes Rademaker (1887?1957), much more attention is paid to how his scientific ideas developed over time?about which a great deal has been rediscovered of recent years?than about the details of his private life. This biography explores a number of parallel biographical themes. First, it focuses on the lives and works of Rademaker and his teacher Rudolf Magnus at Utrecht. The second ?double life? considered here is that of Rademaker and Raymond Garcin from Paris, whose intellectual rapport was so immediate and complete that their application of the analysis of Rademaker?s experimental data in the clinical field produced gems of scientific research and a life-long friendship.

Keywords: biographical approach; double life; experimental physiologist; Gysbertus Godefriedus Johannes Rademaker; neurologist; Rudolf Magnus; scientific ideas
