Lord Lister had a brilliant and distinguished career as a surgeon, and was known for his discovery and establishment of the antiseptic method of treatment in surgical operations.
Lord Lister affected man's relation to sickness and disease more fundamentally than any other philosophic physician devoted to these problems. For Lister was emphatically far more than a great surgeon: he was far more the founder of modern surgery. He was a great philosopher whose thought never deviated from the central problem of life -- the mystery and quality of vitality.
