Abstract

Generic man has evidenced curiosity concerning self and the external world since the beginning of recorded history. How is the external world related to man and how does it affect man's nature? Possible answers to these understandings involve both objective and subjective experiences. The objective world can be perceived by others and verified. Similar interpretations are often functions of common environments and educational dogma. Subjective experience is a private matter which may deny communication, or if communicated, may deny common interpretation. It is hoped that primarily through focusing upon objective experiences as recorded in the history of the development of concepts concerning the heart and circulation that some insights into the nature of man may be identified.
