Many advances in medicine and surgery can be traced back to advances in our understanding of the structure and function of the human body.
Human anatomy became an objective discipline in the sixteenth century; based on direct observation and scientific principles. Not surprisingly; the study of human anatomy has progressed to the point where it is now universally accepted and recognised as a scientific discipline necessary for the practise of modern medicine.

This updated and expanded A History of Human Anatomy 2nd edition (PDF) covers anatomy from antiquity to the present. The authors present many scholars and teachers; as well as the time periods; locations; and impact of their work; as well as controversies in anatomy and advances in the discipline; in this ebook. These topics range from early forefathers of the art to the development of techniques that have propelled anatomy study to its current state.
The authors attempted to present a broad overview of the historical anatomists and movements that shaped our current understanding of what is now known as medical anatomy. This lavishly illustrated volume covers nearly four centuries of medical history.

It was a time of spectacular achievements; with many great medical personalities living; making important anatomical discoveries; and writing impressive treatises. With so much historical anatomy literature available; the authors took a somewhat eclectic and selective approach to presenting the most important material in this work. As man continues to learn about the structure of his body with new and noninvasive technologies such as MRI; uncovering parts of the human anatomy never seen before; the study of anatomy as a scientific discipline continues indefinitely alongside the study of anatomy as a historical discipline.
