The Influence of Santorio’s Works on Giorgio Armeno Baglivi of Dubrovnik

 
Abstract:

This post is also available in: enEnglish slSlovenščina (Slovenian)

Santorio Santorio (1561−1636), a physician born in Capodistria, introduced new worth into medicine with his quantitative approach. The possibility of numeric monitoring and mea­suring various physiological and pathological processes within the human body, i. e. metabolism or recording of body temperature, brought exactness in expression into medi­cine, along with the possibility of proving results. Santorio was Galileo’s pupil and accepted his mechanistic principles, introducing them in his work De medicina statica. His work influ­enced many generations of physicians. This article mainly discusses Santorio’s influence on Baglivi, a physician from Dubrovnik.
