This book seeks to highlight how modern Western medicine has developed thanks to the increasingly precise knowledge of the structure of internal and external body organs and the development of new models that explain how they work and, above all, how this process was made possible, in addition to the practice of dissection, by the increasingly extensive use of images (drawings, woodcuts, xylographies, etchings, wax, clay and wooden models), which played a fundamental role in the transmission of medical knowledge in universities, academies and the general public.

Abstract

This book seeks to highlight how modern Western medicine has developed thanks to the increasingly precise knowledge of the structure of internal and external body organs and the development of new models that explain how they work and, above all, how this process was made possible, in addition to the practice of dissection, by the increasingly extensive use of images (drawings, woodcuts, xylographies, etchings, wax, clay and wooden models), which played a fundamental role in the transmission of medical knowledge in universities, academies and the general public.
