W e now think of blood as a tissue and say that blood is formed where its cells are formed; but the Greeks thought of blood as imperfectly elaborated food; and if this is what the word "blood" means, it Marcello Malpighi, 1628-1694 43 is not very far from the truth to say that the liver performs a part of the elaboration of digested food into blood. Even if Malpighi supposed that all the digested food (chyle) passes from the intestine into the lymphatics, not into the blood-vessels, there would still remain for him the problem of why the liver, if it is a gland like the parotid, has such a very peculiar blood-supply; and this problem he ignores.

T h e scientific societies accelerated progress by publishing fragments, so that a scientist could make his contribution to another's research while it was in progress. T h e list which follows gives the dates and origins of some of these early societies, and the foundation of the Royal Society may be seen against a general trend.
