Footnote 56:

For example, in De anatomicis administrandis 1.3.231: “The student must carefully do everything himself, even to removing the skin.” (tr. Singer 1956). On the superiority of learning by dissection to booklearning, see De usu partium 3.98.14-16: “If anyone wishes to observe the works of Nature, he should put his trust not in books of anatomy but in his own eyes.” (tr. May 1968, p. 119).
