What it is: Human medicine and veterinary knowledge is very old and full of charlatanry, methods incompatible with current medical ethics, but also revolutionary new ideas and discoveries. Our station offers the following small selection from an almost unlimited range of topics: Diet and health advice in ancient times; How the physician convicted Galen Simulanten; Aristotle’s fallacies about herd animals and the consequences; Embryology in England in the 17th century.
