What Is Medicine?

Paul U. Unschuld

University of California Press

This chapter emphasizes the contributions of Jean Fernel (1497–1558), a contemporary of Vesalius and Paracelsus. He made use of the many components that the era offered him and introduced the most efficient architecture. He created a comprehensive therapeutics that might have continued to exist if his era had survived. His plan of the organism was marked by hierarchy. The body itself could not have divulged it to him. Its power of expression in the sixteenth century was just as insufficient as it had been two millennia earlier. The reality was vein valves, fallopian tubes, and a few clarified details but interpretation was not really helped by this. The three functions of the soul that ruled over the body include the brain and nerves, heart and arteries, and lastly, liver and veins.

Keywords:   therapeutics, power of expression, soul, organism, medicine, intellectual history
