The Learning Renaissance

Leonardo Da Vinci: Anatomy

I used to teach a History of Medicine course as part of the UK School Council History Project. Within it I would cover the work of Leonardo Da Vinci in his development of anatomically correct images of animals and humans, which he would use to ensure that the texture and underlying musculature of his paintings and sculptures were as lifelike as possible.

It was therefore very gratifying to find these marvellous drawings, which are now available as an app from iTunes: link:

Dazed and confused much of the time but convinced we can, as a species, do much better than this if we set our minds to being much more positive and productive towards our fellow humans.
