Chapter Summary

This index section presents list of names that occur in this book Early Modern Zoology. The new definition of the animal is one of the fascinating features of the intellectual life of the early modern period. The sixteenth century saw the invention of the new science of zoology. This went hand in hand with the (re)discovery of anatomy, physiology and - in the seventeenth century - the invention of the microscope. The book shows that the subject of the de- and re-construction of the animal from natural history to the field of the arts is highly problematic.

Keywords: early modern zoology; natural history
