This illustrated biography presents the compelling yet overlooked story of a pioneer in the medical sciences, Rudolf Magnus. Though Magnus was also an authority in the field of pharmacology, it was his neurophysical work on posture that made him famous throughout the world and ensured his legacy with the "Magnus & de Kleijn reflexes." His historic volume on posture, Körperstellung, led to his nomination, with de Kleijn, for the 1927 Nobel Prize. Moving from his childhood through his illustrious scientific career, this volume is essential reading for historians of science and those interested in European medical history.
