The invention of the microscope has helped better understand the human body, bacteria, and even something as small as the atom. New discoveries have been made possible with the invention of the microscope which has helped make advances in science, industry, and medicine. The invention of the microscope has changed the course of history and affects the lives of many today which is why it is the most important invention. In the late 1500s Zacharias Jansen made the first rudimentary microscope and opened the door to the microscopic world. His invention allowed others such as Anton van Leeuwenhoek to improve on his work to build more successful microscopes.
Another discovery of human anatomy was by William Harvey, who was born in Kent in 1578. Harvey studied medicine at Cambridge and Padua. He worked in London as a doctor and a Lecturer of Anatomy at the Royal College of Surgeons, before becoming Royal Physician to King James I and King Charles I. Harvey did comparative studies on animals and humans. He realised that he could observe living animals hearts in action and his findings would also apply to humans. Before Harvey, doctors and Galen thought that new blood was constantly being made in the liver to replace blood that was burnt up in the body.
These scientist are William Harvey and Robert Boyle. These two scientists are really important to the scientific revolution and enlightenment period. These two figures had really great impact on society then and now, because without William Harvey we wouldn't know how blood circulated around the... ... middle of paper ... ...hanged the world as well as changing the way we view things. William Harvey and Robert Boyle are both great scientists. Both discovered and achieved many great and important things, but William Harvey stood out more and had a greater impact on the world back then and now.
The Enlightenment period was a culture movement where philosophers, historians, theologians, and scientist alike began to redefine society. Isaac Newton, prominent for his scientific research, set up the framework for this period as nearly every scientific discovery followed his principles. So what had begun by the likes of scientists Newton and Galileo during the Scientific Revolution of the 17th century, gave way to the popularization of science by the 18th century. By the mid-18th century, Franklin, with the help of philosophy, pushed the envelope further than any professional during this period; he challenged widely held beliefs, including his own, by applying the scientific method and employed skepticism. For this reason, science influenced people across various fields to vet their knowledge on the natural world.
He didn’t know exactly how it all worked mechanically. He was very good with his observations of changes that took place, but why these changes took place he just didn’t yet understand. DNA technology and advancements in technology in general, advancements in scientific discoveries and scientists who shared the love of evolution and wanted to further Darwin’s work brought an outstanding amount of evidence and information to be used to further expand on the theory of evolution. One of the most astonishing technological advancements was the mapping of the human genome and the genome of other species and the ability to compare DNA. With this gene sequencing were analyzed and compared showing various similarities and differences, this ultimately strengthened the idea that somewhere millions to billions of years ago there is a common ancestor of all species.
With help from his tutor, he was able to discover a new variety of mastcells through his staining experiments. Paul then returned to the University of Breslau in 1874. He continued to experiment with dyes in Leipzig, where his university studies continued. In 1877, Paul Ehrlich published a paper on dyes. A year later, he graduated as a doctor of medicine.
He helped fuel the scientific revolution and influence many philosophers and scientists to pursue his ideals and help make the world a better place. Bacon was the true champion of modern science as we know it, and his motivation to reconstruct the society into a better environment has impacted many. He has left behind a cultural legacy that embraces most of the groundwork for the success of technology and for the contemporary world as we know it. Francis Bacon’s motivation and enactment to emphasize the bond between religious principles and scientific intelligence, his positive views toward reasoning and aversive outlook on experience, and his viewpoint and influences on the prominence of education have all contributed to civilization and to the principles of philosophy and science.

The well-known Aristotle also contributed to the history of anatomy as he was the first to distinguish the difference between nerves and tendons and between arteries and blood vessels using knowledge gained from animal dissections. Herophilus, another anatomist, is known as one of the earliest “Fa... ... middle of paper ... ...certain scientists. During this time, many medical students began to rob graves in order to obtain bodies to perform dissections on. This then led to the development of the Anatomy Act of 1832 in order to supply a sufficient amount of dead bodies to perform dissections on. The nineteenth century also experienced an expanding amount of knowledge on developmental anatomy due to the many experiments and research being done to study it.
Andreas Vesalius is very interesting. He had a very exciting background and was able to discover many earth-shattering discoveries in the anatomical field. To publish his discoveries, Andreas Vesalius published many books that were read, copied, and read again until almost every scientist in the whole world knew about his discoveries. These publications and discoveries helped Andreas gain a lot of recognition in the scientific revolution. Andreas Vesalius was born on December 31, 1514 at Brussels, Habsburg Netherlands (a part of modern day Belgium) to Anne van Hamme and Andreas Vesalius (his dad).
