Outros nomes: Клавдий Гален

Cláudio Galeno ou Élio Galeno, em latim Claudius Galenus e grego Κλαύδιος Γαληνός, , mais conhecido como Galeno de Pérgamo foi um proeminente médico e filósofo romano de origem grega, e provavelmente o mais talentoso médico investigativo do período romano. Suas teorias dominaram e influenciaram a ciência médica ocidental por mais de um milênio. Seus relatos de anatomia médica eram baseados em macacos, visto que a dissecação humana não era permitida no seu tempo , mas foram insuperáveis até a descrição impressa e ilustrações de dissecções humanas por Andreas Vesalius em 1543. . Desta forma Galeno é também um precursor da prática da Vivissecção e experimentação com animais.

Contexto: A god, as I have said, commanded me to tell the first use also, and he himself knows that I have shrunk from its obscurity. He knows too that not only here but also in many other places in these commentaries, if it depended on me, I would omit demonstrations requiring astronomy, geometry, music, or any other logical discipline, lest my books should be held in utter detestation by physicians. For truly on countless occasions throughout my life I have had this experience; persons for a time talk pleasantly with me because of my work among the sick, in which they think me very well trained, but when they learn later on that I am also trained in mathematics, they avoid me for the most part and are no longer at all glad to be with me. Accordingly, I am always wary of touching on such subjects, and in this case it is only in obedience to the command of a divinity, as I have said, that I have used the theorems of geometry
