    You can't really blame him though.. human dissections weren't allowed so it's logical to assume that animal anatomy is similar to human anatomy because they are both alive. There wasn't exactly any other theories around.

    It's not Galen's fault that nobody had challenged him until Vesalius. It's societies unquestioning attitude.
    And I don't agree with him regressing it, It's more stagnation.

    True I guess, but I don't think he should have assumed that his ideas were right. He did prove the brain controlled the body though, and at least he emphasised the need for clinical observation. I like Vesalius. Even if he is a bit creepy for stealing bodies and the like :beard:

    I think it was mainly the churches fault for only teaching galens ideas and punishing anyone who dared to challenge galens ideas. Vesalius was awesome this convo is actually really good history revision ngl

    They only taught Galen's ideas because it was the only ideas that were around at the time. I'm not sure if they had a choice... I'd also like to point out that Galen appealed to them because he acknowledged that there was a God, which corresponded to Christianity and Islam. Seeing as he embraced their views they were more likely to respect him.
    I don't think they punished anyone who challenged Galen. Science at the time was pretty much banned, so if anyone was caught doing Science (let alone trying to disprove Galen) they would have most likely been killed.

    Vesalius was awesome :awesome: and creepy . If it wasn't for the printing press he wouldn't have received much recognition though...
