As Anita Guerrini among others has pointed out, the height of refinement was symbolized by the height of nervous - terized by intelligence, literacy, and the expression of imaginative creativity. Obesity was particularly associated with apoplexy, paralysis, asthma and putrid fevers, and a range of therapeutic options was proposed.

Anita Guerrini reconstructs the ideas, events, and interconnections in Cheyne's era and shows how Cheyne's life and work uniquely epitomize the transition between premodern and modern culture. Paperback, 304 pages.

Norman: University of Oklahoma Press, 2000. The Scotsman George Cheyne lived during a generation (17001740) of moralists spinning systems in every shape and hue, among which his own was one of the more colorful and disorganized. His unique talent was not in systematic medicine, but in an ability to engage the famous and great as a medical guru and spiritual savant.

Medical doctor George Cheyne, little known today, was among the most quoted men in eighteenth-century Britain. A 450-pound behemoth renowned for his Falstaffian appetites, he nevertheless advocated moderation to his neurotic clientele. Cheyne was an early admirer of Isaac Newton and a writer on mathematics and natural philosophy, yet he also linked science and mysticism in his writings. This inventor of the all-lettuce diet was both an author of learned tomes and, to his patients, a fellow sufferer who struggled with obesity and depression.

Scientist and mystic, patient and healer, libertine and scholar, Cheyne embodies the contradictions and obsessions of the Age of Enlightenment. Anita Guerrini reconstructs the ideas, events, and interconnections in Cheyne’s era and shows how Cheyne’s life and work uniquely epitomize the transition between premodern and modern culture.
