ABSTRACT

Although the expression “rate of living” and the theory named after it are rightly ascribed to Raymond Pearl (1928), the underlying idea and its mechanistic basis have a long, ongoing evolutionary history. As originally proposed, this theory stated that the duration of life of an organism is dependent upon the exhaustion of a fixed quantity of a vital substance at a rate proportional to the metabolic rate. Two distinct factors were believed to govern length of life: (a) a genetically determined metabolic potential, and (b) rate of metabolism. The first component of this theory owes its origin to the earlier reports by Rubner (1908), who noted that the metabolic energy expended per gram body weight during lifetime in five mammalian species, which differed six fold in longevity, was similar, around 200kcal. He proposed that duration of life depended on the rate of expenditure of this limited amount of biological energy. More... »
