Description

William Harvey's On the Motion of the Heart and Blood in Animals is a classic work of the scientific revolution and of modern medicine, for in it he famously argued, with extensive evidence based on dissections and vivisections, for the circulation of the blood. It also overturned the longstanding theories of the heart's movement and function. This new edition is suitable for classroom use and for general interest. In addition to an updated translation, it also contains an introductory essay and footnotes.

"Professor Carty's excellent new edition of William Harvey's classic treatise will hopefully return On the Motion of the Heart and Blood in Animals to its rightful place in liberal arts education."
--Geoffrey Kellow, Associate professor of Intellectual History, The College of the Humanities, Carleton University

"This new edition puts Harvey's masterpiece of anatomical observation and deductive reasoning within the reach of liberal arts students everywhere. Professor Carty updates Robert Willis's 1847 translation, modernizing Willis's diction and simplifying his syntax. Carty also supplies Harvey's Dedication to Charles I, his indispensable figures, a brief introduction sketching Harvey's life and the scientific and political context of his work, and many helpful explanatory and scholarly footnotes--advantages that are combined in no other edition currently available."
--Jeff J.S. Black, St. John's College, Annapolis and Santa Fe

Jarrett A. Carty is an Associate Professor at the Liberal Arts College, Concordia University, Montreal.
