Two papers dealing with influential schools of thought in the eighteenth century study of biology. The first examines the theory of animal oeconomy of English anatomist John Hunter (1728-1773) which can be viewed, in the domain of life science, as a general discourse including an eighteenth-century "political oeconomy." The second paper explores the origins and development of the Gottingen school of biology, and the impact of the concept of transcendental Naturphilosophie on the Gottingen school.
