A victim of the political turmoil of the times, William Harvey was nevertheless the mainspring of vast historical changes in anatomy and physiology.

Wright's biography skillfully repositions Harvey. Inthe English physician William Harvey published his revolutionary theory of blood circulation.

Offering a radical conception of the workings of the human body and the function of the heart, Harvey's theory overthrew centuries of anatomical and physiological orthodoxy and had profound consequences for the history of science.

It also had an enormous impact on culture more generally. While his published work on the circulation of blood is considered the most important of his academic life, Harvey also made significant contributions to embryology with the publication of his book Exercitationes de Generatione Animalium in William Harvey was both a physician and natural historian.

He is best known for his demonstration of the circulation of the blood. This discovery replaced centuries of theory with evidence based on experiment.

Born in Kent, Harvey studied at Cambridge before travelling to Padua, one of the pre-eminent medical schools in Europe (where Vesalius had been Professor of Anatomy). Early Life and Education. William Harvey was born on April 1, in Folkstone, England.

He was born into a relatively wealthy family: his father, Thomas Harvey, was a successful businessman who became Mayor of Folkstone; his mother, Joane Hawke, gave birth to nine children, of whom William.

By his discovery of the circulation of the blood, Harvey laid the foundation of scientific biology and medicine. And yet Harvey was the child of a pre-rationalistic age. He was the life-long thinker on the purpose and indeed the mystery of circular phenomena: the circulation of the blood on the one hand and the cycle of generation on the other.

Wright does a great job of putting Harvey's life into the context of his times. Harvey was a contemporary of Francis Bacon, John Donne, Shakespeare, Descartes and Galileo. Wright notes any relationship (or not) that Harvey had with each and the book gives a unique angle on the European world in the first half of the 17th s: 8.

William Harvey's revolutionary book on the circulatory system, published in Latin indemonstrated for the first time how the heart pumps blood through the body. His findings overturned the world's basic understanding of the way the body functions and changed fundamental knowledge of physiology as much as any scientific work in history.
