Front Cover
University of Illinois Press, 1991 - Medical - 205 pages
"The Doctrine of Signatures
is one of the first and most significant works in our time to show how closely
connected the liberal arts are to clinical medicine. It is the seminal work
in the recent history of the philosophy of medicine, a field that is enjoying
a renaissance throughout the world today."
-- Edmund D. Pellegrino, M.D.
