Ibn Sina Avicenna is one of the foremost philosophers of the golden age of Islamic tradition that also includes al-Farabi and Ibn Rushd. He is also known as al-Sheikh al-Rais Leader among the wise men a title that was given to him by his students. In the west he is also known as the " Prince of Physicians " for his famous medical text al-Qanun "Canon".

Fine illuminated openings begin each of the five books. Two of the illuminated headings were done by the same person, who was possibly the master illuminator in the workshop, while those opening the other three books were probably executed by other, slightly less skilled, members of the same workshop of calligraphers and illuminators.

An extra illuminated heading has been inserted in the middle of the third chapter; it was added later, probably in the 17th century. Within the text itself there are small diagrams of the cranial sutures.

Similar diagrams are found in earlier Arabic discussions of anatomy, though the origin of the diagram is unknown.

Only four other complete Arabic copies are recorded, all of them of a more recent date than the NLM copy: Florence Laurent no. Franz Steiner, , p.

In the Canon of Medicine by Avicenna, the discussions of anatomy are scattered throughout the huge encyclopaedia, with the anatomy of a particular organ being discussed in the section concerned with diseases particular to that organ.

These anatomical sections of the Canon were often copied out and compiled as a separate treatise. Two manuscripts in the NLM collection illustrate this interest in the anatomical portions of the Canon.

This formulation of the pulmonary circulation, sometimes called the 'lesser' circulation, was made three centuries before those of Michael Servetus d. Brill, ; reprinted Frankfurt: There is no modern European-language translation of the entire Canon. A translation of the first book only, made from the medieval Latin version and not directly from the Arabic, was published by Cameron Gruner, A Treatise on the Canon of Medicine of Avicenna Incorporating a Translation of the First Book London, , and a translation of the first book only, made from an Urdu translation and also not directly from the Arabic, was published by Mazhar H.

Naveed Clinic, The material cause, the efficient cause, the formal cause, and the final cause: Avicenna's thesis on the elements of the cosmos is described by Gruner as "the foundation of the whole Canon ". The elements we experience are mixed with small amounts of other elements and are therefore not the pure elemental substances. The Canon of Medicine divides the thesis on temperaments into three subsections; a general overview, one based on members of the body, and temperaments based on age.

The temperaments are reported to be the interaction between the four different element's qualities, such as the conflict between dryness, wetness, cold, and hot. Avicenna suggests that these qualities battle between each other until an equilibrium state is reached and this state is known as the temperaments. The Canon also adopted the ancient theory of Four Temperaments and extended it to encompass "emotional aspects, mental capacity, moral attitudes, self-awareness, movements and dreams".

This expanded theory of four temperaments is given in the following table: Canon describes humans as having eight different "varieties of equipoise", or differing temperaments. The Canon continues to explain the sun's position in relation to ideal temperament and the role that climate and human skin play.


Organs are nowhere near ideal in temperament, but skin comes the closest. Avicenna says that the hand, especially the palm and the tip of the index finger, is the most sensitive of all and attuned to tactile contact. Medicine is described as "hot" or "cold", not based upon its actual temperature but with regard to how it relates to the temperament of the human body.

The Canon then describes when temperaments are unequal, in other words, illness. Avicenna separates these into two categories, which are fairly self explainable within the context of what he had already defined as the temperaments. The compound intemperaments are where two things are wrong with the temperament, i.

The Canon of Medicine - Wikipedia

There are only four because something cannot be simultaneously hotter and colder or drier and moister. The four simple temperaments and four compound intemperaments can each be divided into "Those apart from any material substance" and "Those in which some material substance is concerned", for a total of sixteen intemperaments. Examples of the sixteen intemperaments are provided in the "third and fourth volumes.

Each member of the body is described to be given each its individual temperament, each with its own degree of heat and moisture. Avicenna lists members of the body in "order of degree of Heat", from hottest to coldest. Then a list is given of coldest members to hottest. Then a list is given in order of moisture. Avicenna credits Galen with this particular list. The Canon divides life into four "periods" and then subdivides the first period into five separate categories.

The following table is provided for the four periods of life: Avicenna says that the third period shows signs of decline in vigor and some decline in intellectual power. In the fourth period, both vigor and intelligence decline. Avicenna divides the beginning stage of life in the following table, according to Oskar Cameron Gruner's edition of the Canon of Medicine: Avicenna generalizes youth as having a "hot" temperament, but comments that there is controversy over which periods of youth are hotter.

The general notion that youth are "hot" in temperament is due to youth's supposed relationship to members of the body that are hot. For example, blood was considered "hot" as was mentioned earlier, therefore youth is assumed to be hot partially due to blood being more "plentiful" and "thicker", according to Avicenna. Evidence for youth having an excess of blood is suggested by Avicenna's observation that nose bleeds are more frequent within youth. Other contributing factors are the youth's association with sperm and the consistency of their bile.

Further description of youth in regards to heat and moisture is given with respect to sex, geographical location, and occupation.

The Canon says, for example, that females are colder and more moist. The Canon of Medicine is based upon the Four Humours of Hippocratic medicine, but refined in various ways. In disease pathogenesis , for example, Avicenna "added his own view of different types of spirits or vital life essences and souls, whose disturbances might lead to bodily diseases because of a close association between them and such master organs as the brain and heart".

The generation and nourishment of proper soul takes place in the heart; it resides in the heart and arteries, and is transmitted from the heart to the organs through the arteries. At first, it [proper soul] enters the master organs such as the brain, liver or reproductive organs; from there it goes to other organs while the nature of the soul is being modified in each [of them].

As long as [the soul] is in the heart, it is quite warm, with the nature of fire, and the softness of bile is dominant. Then, that part which goes to the brain to keep it vital and functioning, becomes colder and wetter, and in its composition the serous softness and phlegm vapor dominate. That part, which enters the liver to keep its vitality and functions, becomes softer, warmer and sensibly wet, and in its composition the softness of air and vapor of blood dominate.

In general, there are four types of proper spirit: One is brutal spirit residing in the heart and it is the origin of all spirits. Another — as physicians refer to it — is sensual spirit residing in the brain.

The third — as physicians refer to it — is natural spirit residing in the liver. The fourth is generative — i.

These four spirits go-between the soul of absolute purity and the body of absolute impurity.

The Canon defines a humour as "that fluid, moist 'body' into which our aliment is transformed", [8]: The secondary fluids are separated into "non-excrementitious" and "excrementitious". Avicenna calls this humour "the most excellent of all" [8]: This section describes blood and compares its healthy states with its unhealthy states. Avicenna describes healthy blood as "red in colour, has no unpleasant odour, and has a very sweet taste.

The serous humour is described as a sweet fluid that is cold and moist in relation to blood and bilious humours. Serous humour resembles blood and is necessary for body tissues for two reasons: Dunya Commentary by Nasirudeen at-Tusi: Volume 1: Logic PDF , file size: Physics PDF , file size: Metaphysics PDF , file size: Sufism PDF , file size: Minor editing of e-text in word format.
