March 17, 2015 • 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM

It’s commonly said that “you are what you eat.” These days, we tend to mean that if you consume the right foods, containing the right nutrients, you’ll tend to be healthy and live long. But some centuries ago, other sensibilities were available that helped define the nature and causes of human character, individual and collective. In his talk, Harvard historian Dr. Steven Shapin discusses one of the more familiar examples of this analogical and causal mode of reasoning in the period from the 16th to the 18th centuries—why beef-eating made the English who they were.

In this talk, Vivian Nutton will compare Andreas Vesalius’ annotations for revisions of two works: his 1538 reworking of Johann Guenther’s Institutiones anatomice (Principles of Anatomy according to Galen) and the annotated copy of the 1555 edition of the Fabrica. The annotations reveal much that is new about the great Renaissance anatomist and show that he was constantly thinking about how to understand and interpret the human body.

April 8, 2015 • 6:15 PM - 7:30 PM

Join members of the NYAM Section on Urology, members of the New York Section of the AUA, and residents from area programs as they pay tribute to Dr. Jerry G.

April 14, 2015 • 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM

Comparable in importance to Copernicus's De Revolutionibus Orbium Coelestium (1543), William Harvey's Exercitatio Anatomica de Motu Cordis et Sanguinis in Animalibus (1628) revolutionized human anatomy. This talk by Dr. Nick Wilding will explore the movement and reception of Harvey's theory across Europe, paying special attention to the evidence from the marginalia by Marc'Aurelio Severino in Dr. John Loeb's presentation copy.
