"Vila provides a compelling argument for the interrelationships between literature and medicine in France in the latter half of the eighteenth century... Vila parallels Diderot and Bordeu, Rousseau and Tissot, Sade and Roussel, and other, providing an interesting and convincing demonstration of how mutually influential medicine and literature were... none can ignore it in future considerations of the subject."
