History of Anatomy: An International Perspective – eBook PDF

Information on human anatomy has not always been a vital component of medical education and practice. Many European medical schools did not stress anatomy in their curricula until the post-Renaissance era; existing knowledge was mainly produced between the 16th and 20th centuries. Though not all cultures throughout history have viewed anatomy as essential to medicine, most have formed ideas about the external and internal mechanisms of the body—influences on the field of anatomy that are usually overlooked by practitioners and scholars of Western medicine.

History of Anatomy: An International Perspective, (PDF) explores the global and ancient origins of our modern-day understanding of anatomy, providing detailed biographies of anatomists from varied historical and cultural settings. Chapters organized by geographic region, including the Middle East, Africa, and Europe, review the lives of those that helped shape our existing understanding of the human form. Examining both the lesser-known and celebrated figures, this all-inclusive work examines their contributions to the discipline and assists readers develop a global perspective on a foundation of modern medicine and surgery.
