- About this book
Life, environment, work and controversy of a doctor, humanist and anatomist who lived in the decades during the changeover between the 15th and 16th century. The biography places the creator of public demonstrations of anatomy in the theatre, Alessandro Benedetti (1452-1512), beyond the history of the Paduan Study. Research of works has brought to light the complex relation between ancient and modern, between philology and direct experience, between humanities, rhetoric and science prior to Vesalio.
