Un caso non noto dell’analogia micro-macrocosmica in Leonardo: la connessione tra embriologia e geologia (2020)

unapi

The comparative analysis of Leonardo’s embryological and geological studies carried out around 1509 shows how, in this case, anatomy influenced his studies of the earth. It is an unknown case of application in Leonardo of the more general analogy between microcosm and macrocosm. The study of the development and hydrostatic balance of the fetal body immersed in its bath of fluis has many correspondences with Leonardo’s contemporary theory of the earth dominated by an historical conception concerning the continents first emergence from the waters, just like the birth of the animal body, and through the application of hydrostatic concepts.
