The Development of Bioenergetics
Living systems, being built of matter, and being driven by energy, their analysis can be approached from two sides: that of matter or from the side of energy. This division is analogous to the division into structure and function, or, anatomy and physiology. This division may be very convenient but is artificial, and exists only in our mind, not in nature. Structure and function, essentially, are identical, two sides of the same coin. Structure generates function and function generates structure. A deeper understanding can be achieved only by a fusion of the two.
