William Harvey, “The Anatomical Exercises (De motu cordis)”, 1628 was nonfiction science of physiology. The Scientific Revolution of 1543 was a pair of books (astronomy and anatomy). William Harvey, “De Motu Cordis”, 1628 established the “circulatory system” (heart, arteries and veins).
“De Motu Cordis”, 1628 is not “Eidonomy” (study of external morphology); in contrast, William Harvey studied “Anatomy” (study of internal morphology). Morphology is the study of biological form. Eidonomy as a medical subject in Chinese history dates back to the Yellow Emperor’s, “Classic of Internal Medicine”. Acupuncture is based historically on Eidonomy and not Anatomy. William Harvey, “The Anatomical Exercises (De motu cordis)”, 1628 was historic in establishing the heart as a “mechanical pump”. This “mechanism” view of physiology made William Harvey famous; and, the approach continues to today.
