Ibn Annafis, Descartes and Harvey (in Arabic)

Auther : Salem Yafoot

Our goal in this paper, is to lay down the role that Ibn Annafiss heart motions theory has played in the great blood circulation discovery by William Harvey. This task first requires to throw some light on the advanced character of that theory, through its comparison with similar theories that have appeared later, especially Descartes theory. Despite the time difference between them, Ibn Annafis has worked out a position based on considerations of anatomy and experience, while Descartes could not break with the ancient scholastic tradition on the same question.

That permitted us to present a debatable hypothesis concerning Harveys acquaintance with Ibn Annafiss Sharh Tashrih al Kanon.
