The the human digestive system by clarifying

Published by admin on

The unique interpretations of
natural philosophy given by Plato, Aristotle and Galen offer different perspectives on the human anatomy and
physiology. The ancient natural philosophers were concerned with the study of
the structure and function of the human digestive system.  Plato, Aristotle,
and Galen in their systematic and empirical inquiries make phenomenological anatomical
and physiological observations. Plato’s views of biology are inspired by is
immediate teacher Socrates. Socrates viewed the human
body as comprising of the body and the soul (Phaedo 277), teachings that Plato
replicated in his posterior analysis in the human
digestive system. Aristotle adopts the perspective of Plato but introduces the
issue of form and matter. In his view, he
integrates subjective description. Galen refined the analysis of the human
digestive system by clarifying on the errors of his predecessors.  It is Galen who first brings up the issue of
the different faculties in living things and integrates the issue of nutrition (Galen,
2017, p. 226). The research
establishes that the three philosophers offer divergent but complementary views about the interactions in
the human digestive system.
