Leonardo Studies

Leonardo da Vinci: Studies

Following a doctorate in the history and philosophy of science at the Warburg Institute (London 1975), the author was invited to work with the late Dr. Kenneth D. Keele, M.D., F.R.C.P. as a senior fellow at Wellcome Institute for the History of Medicine (London 1975-1977). This was followed by further years of post-doctoral fellowships at the Herzog August Bibliothek (Wolfenbüttel) during which time Dr. Keele remained a mentor. This resulted in books and articles. Ongoing studies are leading gradually to a first Collected Works of Leonardo which is being developed as one of the SUMS demos.
