(Chapter 5) Footnote 17:

This passage, beginning “For since the ears should perceive sound,” is copied from Cicero De natura deorum 2.56.141 with some half dozen small changes. Cicero’s text reads et aures, cum sonum percipere debeant qui natura in sublime fertur, recte in altis corporum partibus collocatae sunt; itemque nares et quod omnis odor ad supera fertur recte sursum sunt et quod cibi et potionis iudicium magnum earum est non sine causa vicinitatem oris secutae sunt. Iam gustatus, qui sentire eorum quibus vescimur genera debet, habitat in ea parte oris qua esculentis et potulentis iter natura patefecit. Tactus autem toto corpore aequabiliter fusus est, ut omnes ictus omnesque nimios et frigoris et caloris adpulsus sentire possimus. For medical scientists of the early modern period, Cicero was a significant exponent of teleological prisca medicina, largely because of what he said about divine providence and the tota hominis fabricatio in De natura deorum 2.54-60; his words are echoed more than once by Galen as well as Vesalius. As late as 1651, William Harvey advised his students “goe to the fountain head and read Aristotle, Cicero, Avicen,” and he “did call the neoteriques shitt-breeches.” (John Aubrey in O.L. Dick, Brief lives Ann Arbor: Univ. of Michigan Press, 1957, p. 129). On the influence of Galen on Vesalius’ teleology, see Siraisi 1997.
