Andreas Vesalius (1514-1564) is the most famous of all anatomists. In his On the fabric of the human body, Basle, 1543, he attacked his great Greek predecessor, Galen, for basing his influential anatomical theories on animal dissection and demanded that future descriptions of the human body should be based on human dissection.
