Leonardo da Vinci

Yale Medicine Magazine, 2001 - Spring


by Sherwin B. Nuland, M.D. ’55, HS ’61, clinical professor of surgery; Lipper/ Viking (New York), 2000.

Being a physician, Nuland is particularly interested in Leonardo’s pioneering anatomical dissections and drawings. In this book, he completes his 20-year quest to understand an unlettered man who was painter, architect, engineer, philosopher, mathematician and scientist.
