  Title A treatise on fundamental principles of the philosophy of chiropractic and related topics in the life sciences
Journal J Chiropr Humanit. 2006 ;13():Online access only p 12-20
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Article

Objective: To review literature from the biological sciences and study its application to the philosophy of chiropractic.

Discussion: Fundamental principles of the philosophy of chiropractic may gain wider acceptance within the scientific community with a correlation of the philosophy to literature in biology. In particular, literature that articulates the complexity of living systems and the function of the nervous system as the primary organizing system of the body would seem to facilitate this acceptance. Stephenson elucidated the fundamental purpose of the nervous system as the matter that organizes and coordinates all the functional parts of the body. He did this with the level of understanding of biology of that time period. He explained the connection by describing the 5 signs of life: adaptation, assimilation, elimination, growth and reproduction. He described a normal complete cycle of adaptation with efferent and afferent paths from the brain to the body.

Conclusion: Recent articles in the biological and life sciences support, and provide examples of, the correlation between the overall organization of the body and the role of the nervous system.
