Under the influence of classic science the conception of substance combined with the three dimensional conception of space leads to the question of the site of disease. Now we have a space-time unity, a four dimensional image of the world. According to the gestalt theory it is hopeless to try to understand the whole by way of the analysis of its elements. Physics and chemistry are sciences of the elements: the problem of biology is the whole system. Holism teaches that the processes of life cannot be understood from the mechanistic, physicochemical side, i. e. from the next lower phase. The whole is logically superior to its members.
