Two of the great Veronese physician's (1478-1553) last and most important works. In the first. "Fracastoro recognizes that the principle immanent in nature and explaining it is simpatia, which Fracastoro conceives of in a sense different from that of the humanists. To Fracastoro sympathy is a principle of spiritual order; it is the species spiritualis that unifies the world. In particular, it is to be brought down to the plane of natural things that are to be studied naturalistically." "Fracastoro's scientific thought culminates and concludes with DE CONTAGIONE, which assures him a lasting place in the history of epidemiology . in DE CONTAGIONE the epidemiological problems and the principia contagiorum are delved into with great acuteness. Fracastoro's sheer prophetic intuition yielded hypotheses on causes and ways of infections that were verified in succeeding centuries ." (DSB V, pp. 104-107).
