About Andrea Cesalpino

  • Andrea Cesalpino (Latinized as Andreas Cæsalpinus) (6 June 1519 – 23 February 1603) was an Italian physician, philosopher and botanist.In his works he classified plants according to their fruits and seeds, rather than alphabetically or by medicinal properties.
  • In 1555, he succeeded Luca Ghini as director of the botanical garden in Pisa.
  • The botanist Pietro Castelli was one of his students.
  • Cesalpino also did limited work in the field of physiology.
  • He theorized a circulation of the blood.
  • However, he envisioned a "chemical circulation" consisting of repeated evaporation and condensation of blood, rather than the concept of "physical circulation" popularized by the writings of William Harvey (1578–1657).
