On The Natural Faculties

On The Natural Faculties summary Û 108 Niversity College Dundee and Sir W T Thiselton Dyer late director of the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew have very kindly helped me to identify several animals and plants mentioned by Galen I cannot conclude without expressing a word of gratitude to my former biological teachers Professors Patrick Geddes and J Arthur Thomson The experience reared on the foundation of their teaching has gone far to help me in interpreting the great medical biologist of Greece I should be glad to think that the present work might help however little to hasten the coming reunion between the “humanities” and modern biological science; their present separation I believe to be against the best interest of both A J B 22nd Stationary Hospital Aldershot March 1916 Galen is debatably less wrong than the earlier Greek physicians whom he so viciously decries but his crude anatomical theories have little bearing on modern medicine This edition is poorly edited and poorly laid out The Loeb Classics edition is much better but really why bother

On The Natural Faculties summary Û 108 Pare my own version with Linacre’s Latin translation 1523 and the French rendering of Charles Daremberg 1854 56; in this respect I am also peculiarly fortunate in having had the help of Mr A W Pickard Cambridge of Balliol College Oxford who most kindly went through the Pg vi proofs and made many valuable suggestions from the point of view of exact scholarship My best thanks are due to the Editors for their courtesy and for the kindly interest they have taken in the work I have also gratefully to acknowledge the receipt of much assistance and encouragement from Sir William Osler Regius Professor of Medicine at Oxford and from Dr J D Comrie first lecturer on the History of Medicine at Edinburgh University Professor D’Arcy W Thompson of U Apart from whatever merit Galen s work has this is a terrible edition Amateurish cheap antiuated and typo ridden I ve heard this comes in the superb Loeb edition and if you re really interested in Galen no doubt that s the one to get Back to Galen himself The man made some progress but was still incredibly ignorant about the way the body worked And to jump from him to Harvey is to instantly realize how startlingly little medicine progressed between Galen s time and the 1600s AD Saddening but interesting and very much in contrast with the speedy march of new advances in the field in the last century
