Oeuvres médico-philosophiques et pratiques. 6 vols.

Paris: J.-B. Baillière, 18591864.

Stahl was responsible for the re-introduction of the idea of a “sensitive soul”, propounded by van Helmont. The Stahlian “animism” considered the body to be composed of passive or “dead” substance, which became animated by the soul during life, returning to passivity or “death” on the departure of the soul from the body.
