Von Bollinger, in this address delivered on the occasion of his inauguration as rector of the University of Munich, traces the progress of medicine in all its branches during the last century and especially during the last fifty years. In addition to presenting the advance in science he reviews the changes in the position of the medical profession with special reference to the growth of specialism and of quackery, and to the struggle between the Krankenkassen and physicians brought on by the industrial insurance legislation. In such a general review it is of course impossible to go much into details, suffice it to say that the reader is given a fair and correct impression of the problems and conditions which the members of the medical profession in Germany have to face.
