Dr. James Brown, MD will lecture on the history of Aristotle. Aristotle was a comparative anatomist, embryologist, philosopher and logician who sought out the relation between form and function. The presentation is part of the Pylon Medical History Lecture Series. Sculpted by the late Milton Horn, the pylons of WVU Health Sciences Center are an iconic representation of art, history, and education in the form of seven foot marble pillars. The originals are housed at Ruby Memorial Hospital in Morgantown. Replicas are displayed at WVU Charleston Division and in Martinsburg. The lecture series will discuss each scene of the pylon and its relationship to the history of medicine.
