This collection of essays, composed by scholars from various countries, provides a thorough and articulated investigation into the phenomenon of representation in the field of natural and medical sciences from the Renaissance to the present day. The fundamental impulse given by the use of images to the knowledge of the world of nature and the human body is highlighted by the analysis of exemplary cases and theoretic reflections conducted along the border line between art and science.
