COMMENTS
Comments:  Claude Bernard's posthumous article had been published in Revue scientifique, with an introduction by Berthelot. Pasteur could not believe in his friend Bernard's idea, that alcoholic fermentation could occur without life, and at the end of 1878, he carried out some experiments at his vineyard in Arbois, before writing his "Examen critique", read at the Académie the 26th November, the same year.
