8 Petrarch’s source is Pliny, Historia naturalia, tr. W.H.S. Jones (Cambridge: Harvard University Press, 1963), Book 29, 1-8; Petrarch makes repeated use of Pliny, see especially, the Invective, henceforth cited as ICM, I, 828; II, 868, 872; III, 912.

9 The classification of medicine as verso mechanical art can be found mediante Hugh of St. 11; Petrarch refers preciso medicine as per mechanical art also mediante XII, 2, 454, http://datingranking.net/it/adultfriendfinder-review/ 466, 473-4.

V. Nutton remarks that a good manuscript of Galen’s works was available at the papal courtaud sopra 1353, John Caius and the Manuscripts of Galen, (Cambridge: Cambridge Philological Society, 1987), vol

12 On Petrarch and the dialecticians see Pietro Paolo Gerosa, Umanesimo caritatevole del Petrarca; Prestigio agostiniana, attinenze medievali (Turin: Credenza d’Erasmo, 1966), 208f. 13. Petrarch seems sicuro collapse dialectic and logic; on this issue see Eleonore Stump, Dialectic and its Place per the Development of Medieval Logic (Ithaca: Cornell University Press, 1989).

14 Petrarch is not above employing syllogizing, durante deepest irony, of course; see ICM, III, 932: “Certe ego nunc risu et verecundia impedior sillogismum tibi tuo parem mittere, quo probem te vilissime servum rei. Quod urbanius possum dicam: si quod alio spectat, et ad aliud refertur, et propter aliud est inventum, illi serviat oportet, ut dissimule vis. Cura autem aneantit pecumian spectat et ad illam refertur et propter illam est. Conclude, dyaletice: dunque pecunie donna di servizio levante.”

15 Petrarch also argues that the more necessary is not by that more noble: “Igitur putas necessitas artium nobilitatem arguat. Contra levante; alioquin nobilissimus artificum erit agricola; sutor quoque et pistor et manque, sinon mactare desieris, in precio eritis,” ICM, III, 894-6; cf. III, 910.

16 “. . . the doctor had done nothing at all, nor could he have except what a loquacious dialectician, rich mediante boredom and lacking per remedies, can do”; “Medicum nil omnino vel fecisse, vel facere potuisse, nisi quod dialecticus loquax potest, taedii dives, inopsque remedii.”

18 I use the edition, Conciliator controversarium quae inter philosophos eet medicos versantur (Venice: apud Juntas, 1548). Nancy Siraisi’s conciliabule of d’Abano sopra Arts and Sciences at Padua; The Studium of Padua before 1350 (Toronto: Pontifical Institute of Medieval Studies, 1973), is excellent. D’Abano notes the attack on him as Averroist by the Dominicans sopra Differentia 48; Nardi contests the notion of d’Abano as Averroist per “La opinione dell’anima di nuovo la tempo delle forme appresso Pietro d’Abano,” 1-17, and “In giro alle dottrine filosofiche di Pietro d’Abano,” mediante Studi sulla civilizzazione aristotelica nel Veneto, I: Saggi sull’Aristotelismo padovano dal mondo XIV at XVI (Florence: Sansoni, 1958), 19-74. P. Ovverosia. Kristeller makes the point that Petrarch’s opponents in the De sui ipsius et multorum ignorantia were probably Bolognese, not Paduans, per “Petrarch’s ‘Averroists’; A Note on the History of Aristotelianism durante Venice, Padua, and Bologna,” Bibliotheque d’Humanisme et Renaissance, 14 (1952), 59-65. Giessena (Giessae: Casparus Chemlinus, 1621).

21 See the argument cited con Differentia 3, (8r): “. . . medicari non oriente scientia deconcertante: sed quidam actus et labor particularis, et de tali niente levante scientia . . . regulat durante actu operandi particularem et tunc consequitor medicinae finis perfecte, quod ostenditur.”
